Lately I’ve been really getting into doing mini embroideries, and Sonia over at Dandelyne on Etsy makes the perfect little hoops for these! I’m obsessed.
For this piece I wanted to do something abstract, where I could focus mostly on the color and texture. Texture is my favorite part of embroidery and crewel.
Initially I was going to do an ombre effect in the hoop, but then it just kind of morphed into this. But I love it. You can read more about this piece in the shop, where it is for sale.
This last piece I made (so far!) using my little hoops for The Creative Muster. This one is a 2″ hoop turned into a brooch. I decided to keep it a little abstract. I think it will go well on some winter coats to add a little color to what is otherwise a pretty colorless season.
This one is done on rust colored fabric using mustard yellow, lime green, and blue embroidery floss. I made this one as a part of a gift, hopefully they like it!
I just re-ordered a second round of these mini hoops, what would you guys like to see embroidered in them next? Remember- it can only be about an inch big!
Remember to check back tomorrow for the giveaway!
Recently I finished a piece that is a bit different than anything I have done before. I still have some left over fabric from when I went on a bleaching frenzy, and I chose to embroider something more abstract to go with the abstract pattern the bleach made.
At first I was going to fill in all of the orange circle with the yellow seed stitch, however I didn’t want to cover too much of the fabric so I kept it to the stripe down the middle.
It’s a pretty summery looking piece, I’d say. If I had a sun room this would absolutely be where I would hang it!
