This short video clip shows how Oxford-based illustrator Chloe Giordano creates adorable textile art.

The clip takes us through her inspiration, as well as the process behind making her delicate, miniature freehand embroideries of animals and book covers.

She begins by gathering reference images, which she sketches down before translating them onto fabric. Chloe compares her work to needlepoint, although her work is a lot freer, without a set guide.

“It’s wonderful doing that last stitch. Knowing it’s done is really satisfying,” she says.
