Emillie Ferris Creates Beautiful Insect Inspired Embroideries

UK based embroiderer Emillie Ferris is best known for her beautiful threaded artwork of bees, butterflies, moths, and other creatures. She started her embroidery career back in 2013, whilst she now has more than 165,000 followers on her Instagram page.

In a statement for Colossal, the artist explained that her unique pieces are “inspired by nature, with a tiny sense of magic.”

“I love to try and emulate a sense of romanticism in my embroideries. I like to study numerous references of the object I want to embroider,” Ferris said.

“For example, I must have saved hundreds of reference photos and watched many videos of the blue morpho butterfly, before digitally painting the butterfly in Photoshop, then transferring the pattern to fabric and bringing the butterfly to life with so many shades of blue thread. I couldn’t count them.”
