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.

This piece is also for sale, see more of it here.

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

IMG_3813
So, what’s better than combining my favorite thing to do, and one of my favorite foods? Nothing.

IMG_3817
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.

IMG_3801
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.

Game of Thrones Embroidery

egoodness
got4

In the last month I binge watched all of Game of Thrones, and I think it goes without saying that I’m hooked. So naturally my first thought was that I needed to make an embroidery.

I chose to do the Stark family crest of the wolf, and the saying “winter is coming.” I did the embroidery on purple linen that I bleached.

Anatomical Heart Embroidery No. 2

egoodness
Remember a few months ago when I made an anatomical heart patch? Recently I picked up a vintage metal embroidery hoop, and when I was trying to decided what to make for it the first thing I thought of was this patch.

IMG_3606
The embroidery is done on white linen that I splattered with red paint.

IMG_3607

This is the first metal embroidery hoop I’ve used, and now I’m on a hunt to find more. I like that it gives the embroidery a little bit more of an industrial feel. I like the spring, too!

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.

IMG_3320 IMG_3326

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.

IMG_3331

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