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 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.
This piece is also up for sale in the shop.
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 in a 3″ wooden embroidery hoop. See more of it in the store.

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.
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!

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.

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.
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!

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.
