This tuition video shows you how to create the patches on animal hide as used in the Gladness the Giraffe project in Crewel Animal Portraits. It has been formulated with random freestyle embroidery as an alternative to long and short stitch shading.

As you watch the patches develop, it provides interest and satisfaction.

The 27 minute video tuition clip is filmed in high resolution with voice over instructions to guide you through the learning process.
