IMG_3341
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.

My last snarky embroidery I have to share this week hangs in a vintage flexi-hoop, and states “Just…no.”

…Really? Embroidery

 egoodness really2
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.

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.

Twin Peaks Embroidery (Damn Fine Cup of Coffee)

egoodness
Today I have another 90′s pop culture embroidery to share. This piece is from David Lynch’s cult classic Twin Peaks.

twinpeaks4
The quote, “damn fine cup of coffee,” comes from none other than Agent Cooper himself.

twinpeaks5
I did the embroidery on grey linen, and I put a polka dot texture over using embroidery floss. This piece hangs in an 8″ embroidery hoop that is painted white.

Push It (Salt N Pepa Embroidery)

egoodness
One of my favorite songs from the 90′s comes from Salt N Pepa (also one of my favorite bands from the era)…and that song is Push It.

pushit3
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!

Instasale Tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb 11th)!

Screen shot 2014-02-10 at 10.18.59 AM
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.

Details:
Tuesday, Feb. 11th, 2014.
6:30PM EST.
Follow @toocrewel on Instagram to participate!

Hope to see you there!

Human Ribs Embroidery

egoodness

IMG_2417 
Like I said earlier this week, embroidering human anatomy is one of my favorite things to embroider. My most recent human anatomy piece is this little ribcage. 

IMG_2419 
I splattered some gold paint on the piece to give it a little bit of sparkle. 

IMG_2433 
I used varying sizes of embroidery floss. I used six strands for the bones in the foreground, and three strands for the bones in the background.

Alien Deer Embroidery

egoodness

IMG_2423
Last year Bryan drew this alien sci-fi inspired deer:
1150830_10100420209718551_1645052708_nBryan 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.

IMG_2429IMG_2421I decided to do the embroidery as a simple outline, and then Bryan and I bleached it. We did a couple different phases of bleaching to give it some layers and dimension.
