Last week I finished up this embroidery. I made it on a day where I was feeling kind of blah and needed a reminder to love myself and my body.

The embroidery is in a 8 inch hoop, and done on linen.

Go Away Embroidery

egoodness

IMG_3323
A few weeks ago I shared a few snarky comment embroideries, and I have one more to share with you! This one simply states “Go Away.” The embroidery is on two layered pieces of fabric. The bottom layer is a vintage mint green fabric that is sheer and floral print. The top layer is a recycled white lace.

This was my first time embroidering on lace. The embroidering itself was really easy, because their wasn’t much fabric to go through. I wasn’t able to transfer a design onto the fabric though, so I had to do it free hand. Going at it free hand was definetley fun!

IMG_3335I have more lace that I’m planning to embroider on, and I think I’m going to try a water soluble pen on it to see how that works for putting my design onto it.

Below is the backside of the piece, where to you can see the green fabric used a little bit better.

Moon Phases Embroidery

egoodness
IMG_3314
A couple of weeks ago after the new moon I felt inspired to make a phases of the moon embroidery. Once I finished I decided that it would absolutely not be the last one that I do. Next time it might just be smaller, this one is in a 8 inch hoop, and it takes forever to do satin stitch (the fill).

This one didn’t turn out quite as good as I would have hoped… because circles are hard. I’m trying not to focus on that though, because over my few years of embroidering I’ve learned that imperfections are okay and natural. They play into the charm of handmade. I’m also finally coming to terms with the fact that it is unhealthy to compare yourself to others in whatever it is that you do. Everyone has a different take on things, and that’s what makes things interesting and beautiful.

Everyone enjoy the upcoming new moon!

…Really? Embroidery

Today’s snarky embroidery simply states “…really?” It hangs in a four inch embroidery hoop, which is hand painted black.

The piece is done on a purple linen and I tried to give it a little bit of texture by using a purple ombre embroidery floss for the background pattern.

Please Stop Embroidery

egoodness
This week all of the embroideries I have to share have one thing in common…they’re really sassy & made up of some snarky comments.

pleasestop2
The first embroidery hangs in an 6″ hoop that is hand painted gold. The blue fabric was hand bleached to give it a little bit more interest.

I added the hearts to give it a little bit of sweetness to go with it’s sassiness. This piece already sold, but their will be more similar to it coming up!

Into the Wild Embroidery

egoodness

One of my favorite books, and favorite movies is Into the Wild. The writing is beautiful, and there is something about the story that I find to be so moving.

happiness3
For what seems like forever now I have been thinking about doing an embroidery with one of my favorite Chris McCandless quotes…
“Happiness is only real when shared.”

happiness2
I wanted to keep the embroidery simple, because the story itself is one of simplicity. I did the embroidery on purple, hand bleached fabric. It hangs in a 4″ embroidery hoop, ready to hang above a bookshelf.
