I finished up this embroidery a few weeks back, it is from the graphic novel Ghost World by Daniel Clowes.

This piece is pretty small- it hangs in a 4″ hoop. I had to use various sizes of embroidery floss to get the detail, ranging from six strands to two strands.

Recently I made my secondΒ Simpsons embroidery. This time around I chose to do Bart.

I put the design on the fabric using a water soluble pen, and then colored it in with crayon. I then outlined the piece with black embroidery floss. I also painted the hoop black.

Doughnut Embroidery

My second piece to share this week is another piece of food…a doughnut. Because who doesn’t love doughnuts?

This one is also in a 3″ hoop painted black, on the same white linen as the pizza slice. For this piece I filled it in completely using a split stitch and seed stitch.

Pizza Slice Embroidery

So, what’s better than combining my favorite thing to do, and one of my favorite foods? Nothing.

I made this cute little slice of piece to go into this cute little (3″!) hoop. I used linen for the fabric, and painted the hoop black. I tried to keep it pretty simple, because I guess that has been my thing lately.

This piece is listed up for sale, and you can see more photos of it there.

Happy Friday! Today’s piece is a mini moon and star embroidery.

I’m not sure what type of blend this fabric is, I was given a scrap piece of it. I really liked it though, and I feel like it lends itself well to a nighttime background.

This piece is in a 3″ wooden embroidery hoop. See more of it in the store.

Cat Lady Embroidery

Okay, let me be honest here. I don’t like majority of cats, but our roommate Lauren does have a cat that I do like. So, Walter the cat inspired this embroidery.

I did the embroidery in a 3″ embroidery hoop that I painted black.

Home Sweet Apartment Wooden Embroidery

egoodnessIMG_3755
I really like the way embroidery looks on different mediums, and wood is one of my favorites to use.

IMG_3750 IMG_3745

To make this I hand drilled the holes to embroider through, and then I painted it using acrylic paint. It hangs on the wall using twine.

IMG_3751
This piece was really quite fun- and drilling through the wood is a good stress relief! My next pieces I plan to do using this technique is on ceramic plates, and deer bones. I think it could look really interesting!

To see more photos of this piece you can check it out in the store.
