A Walk in the Secret Garden
Wow. I saw these amazing shoes in the &Stitches Flickr pool this morning and actually said WOW out loud! These were made by Nell Burns of Nell's Embroidery and are machine embroidered, free style. They are based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's beloved children's book, "The Secret Garden". Nell has filled every surface with wonderful detail: flowers and squirrels and even tiny little handles on the gate doors. I love these because of the charming details and because they are based on literature which, being a book-ish type myself, is something I will always be partial to!
See more of Nell's three-dimensional textile work in her Flickr photostream or on her website.
