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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Be chill!

For this necklace I wanted something that reminded me of the moon, but was a little bit abstract.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
I used three different variations of grey for the embroidery.

Purple and Gold Mini Hoop Embroidered Necklace

egoodness

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
Recently I ordered a new set of mini hoops from Dandelyne, this time I got some horizontal ovals, and they were really fun to work with.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
For this one I used four different shades of purplse and maroons, and also a little be of gold embroidery floss.

To make this I just outlined the shape of the hoop with a water soluble pen, and then I just started randomly filling it in.

I am very much in love with these colors, and I want everything in them now. This necklace is up for sale in the shop.

Stay tuned for more this week!

Tina Belcher (Bob’s Burgers) Quote Embroidery

egoodnessProcessed with VSCOcam with t1 preset
Recently I made a Tina Belcher (from the cartoon Bob’s Burgers) quote embroidery that states “I”m a smart, strong, sensual woman.”

IMG_1280
On the fabric I splattered it with gold paint to give it a little something extra.

IMG_1282
For the hoop I painted it black. The floss that I used is a pearl cotton, and one of my favorites- a red ombre. I find myself wanted to use it for everything.

Skeleton Embroidery in Two Hoops

egoodness

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
A couple of years ago I made a skeleton embroidery on hand dyed fabric very similar to the ones you see above. The difference was that it was in a larger hoop, and I only did from the waist up.

IMG_1117
For this set I hand dyed the fabric with red and gold acrylic paint. In one hoop I did from the waist up, and in the other I did from the waist down.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
The hoops are only 3×5″, so for the floss I had to use only three strands, and two strands.

Pieces like these are some of my favorite to do. I love doing all of the intricate details.
