Crystal Ball Emoji Embroideries (Necklace and Wall Decor)

One of my favorite emoji’s is the crystal ball. Naturally I decided to do an embroidery of it!

It is done in a 6″ wooden embroidery hoop painted white. It is on black cotton using two different purples, gold, and silver embroidery floss.

I liked this one so much I also made a necklace out of it!

It is done in a 1.5″ wooden embroidery hoop.

Ouija Board Embroidery

egoodness

Last year I did an embroidery of a Ouija board, and this year I did a second one, but with a little bit more of a Halloween feel to it.

IMG_7103

I did this embroidery on white linen, and splattered it with red paint. The hoop is wooden, but I hand painted it black.

This embroidery has sold, but you can expect to see more like it.

FU Embroidery

egoodness

IMG_7108

This embroidery was one of my favorites to do. I like the idea of mixing hard and soft, which is the essence of this embroidery. I feel like women are often associated with being dainty, and told you have to “sound like a lady.” This piece is a response to that.

IMG_7105

This is done on white linen which has been hand dyed with black ink. The red of the letters is done with an ombre embroidery floss. I also hand painted the wooden hoop.

IMG_7106

This piece has sold, but I plan on making more!

Witch Hat Embroidery

I have another Halloween embroidery to share today! This one is a witch hat with the phrase “witch life.”

IMG_7063

This little embroidery is done in a 4″ hoop, and is done on white medium weight linen (my favorite fabric to embroider on).

IMG_7062

I used black, purple, and a deep pink embroidery floss.

Check out more info on the piece & photos in the shop where it is for sale.

Halloween Icons Embroidery

egoodness

IMG_7114

I think it might be kind of obvious at this point, but Halloween is my favorite holiday, and fall is my favorite time of year. This year I made a few Halloween embroideries, and this icon one is my favorite:

IMG_7079

I think it makes a pretty good Halloween decoration, or if you are me, a decoration for year round.

IMG_7081

What’s your favorite part of Halloween? Mine is dressing up, and the decorations.

This embroidery is listed in the shop for sale, and you can see more info on in there!

All Seeing Eye Embroidered Necklace

Hi! I’ve been awful at updating (it’s been 9 months, awful is an understatement). I’m still embroidering, though! Instagram (follow me @toocrewel) makes it easy to not update, because I can post what I’m working on as it is happening. I remember when blogging was the main wait for me to show my work, and I miss it! So, here I am. Today I’m sharing with you a little embroidered necklace I recently made!

IMG_7075

This little guy is probably one of my favorite necklaces I’ve made to date. The embroidery hoop itself is made by Dandelyne (Sonia has created such a community with her little hoops, seriously check her out!).

IMG_7077

I did the embroidery on a medium weight white linen, and used mustard yellow, black, a silvery purple, and gold embroidery floss.

IMG_7076

I have this necklaces listed in my shop, and since I updated last my necklaces are actually cheaper! They are now available for $15 +shipping.

xoxo.

Orange, Yellow, and Gold Embroidered Necklace

egoodness
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
This mini embroidery hoop necklace is very similar to the purple and gold one I shared last week.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
For this one I used burnt orange, mustard yellow, a sorbet style orange, and gold.

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset
I think it has a 70’s feel, it kind of reminds me of shag carpet. You can see more of this piece in the shop!

Commissioned Pillow Embroidery

egoodnessProcessed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
About a month or so ago I finished this commission. The customer ordered this for his boyfriend, it was a letter that his grandfather had written in Arabic. It was such a sentimental and sweet gift.

IMG_1467
The back side of the pillow is also tan, however it is a darker color than the front. This pillow was a little difficult to work on, because when I transferred over the grandfathers handwriting it did not transfer very dark, so it was a pretty hard to see unless it was the brightest time of the day. It was worth it, though!

IMG_1465

If you’re interested in your own commission piece, pillows start out at $50.00!

Parks and Recreation Inspired Embroidery

egoodness
I am so sad that Parks and Recreation is coming to an end, it is always so funny, and I love so many of the characters/actors. In this last season the company Gryzzl has a saying that goes
“Wouldn’t it be tight if everyone was chill to each other?”

IMG_1498After we watched the episode where you first see this Bryan suggested I do an embroidery of it, naturally I did it immediately.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
I wanted it to resemble an old style crewel, or something you’d see hanging in your grandma’s house. I liked the idea of the contrasting style to the saying.

IMG_1497

This piece hangs in a 10″ hoop, and is up for sale in the shop!

Be chill!

I used three different variations of grey for the embroidery.
