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.

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

I hope everyone has a good weekend, we’re off to Florida to soak up some sun and visit with my sisters! Goodbye snow!!
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.

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.
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.

I was feeling nostalgic, and thought it would be kind of funny to turn this song into an embroidery. Embroideries generally have a sweetness or softness to them, so I always like the idea of mixing it with something that is a little hard and rough around the edges. I also like embroidering pop culture references (I’m sure that is obvious by this point).
I did the embroidery on hand bleached fabric, and painted the wooden embroidery hoop. You can see more photos and information on this piece in the shop!
I’m really excited that tomorrow I will be hosting my first ever Instasale! What’s an instasale, you ask? I will be posting photos of various items and their prices up on instagram and the first person to comment with their email address will be the one who wins the purchase. No worries though, because if you see something that is already purchased that you’d like I can always take custom orders! I’m trying to make room to store new pieces- I’m running out of space!
Just a note: once the sale starts Too Crewel’s etsy shop will be closed for the evening.

Last year Bryan drew this alien sci-fi inspired deer:
Bryan is a big ole’ sci-fi fan, so most of his illustrations have some sort of influence from that. I thought this deer was pretty awesome when I saw it, so I had to embroider it.
