'Off to See the World' Personalised Hoop - Citroen 2CV

For the ones setting off or dreaming of going on new adventures!

The car embroidered with the words 'off to see the world', or your own words, is a classic French icon, car of my childhood, a Citroën 2CV. It is fully loaded with suitcases ready to cross borders and explore. Made from natural linen, and appliqued onto green floral vintage fabric. The suitcases are made from various recycled and new fabrics.

The embroidery is done using a basic sewing machine fitted with an embroidery foot to 'draw' freehand straight onto the fabric with black thread. I simply move the fabric under the needle.

Your hoop will come creatively gift wrapped so you or the recipient feel super special!


Mounted on a 8"/21cm embroidery hoop (made in Britain) - see last photo for hoop size comparison. Ready to hang.


You can choose to personalise this hoop with your own words (up to 5), to replace 'off to see the world' - e.g. 'Ella off on her adventures' or 'Emma & Chris 15th July 2015', and/or a message embroidered on the back (up to 9 words). 

Simply select your choice below, and if personalised, leave me your words in 'Leave a note for Three Red Apples' at checkout.

Made to order. Estimated time to dispatch: 3-4 working days.
