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!

Sheet Music Embroidery

egoodness

Over the holidays I had one of my most challenging commission pieces yet. I embroidered sheet music for John Mayer song. The challenge was worth it, because the result was really beautiful and sentimental piece for the purchaser.

I ended up just doing the chorus, because any more than that would have been very long and taken forever to complete.

This piece was done in a 12″ hoop, so it is fairly large! Even though I was cursing at all of the straight lines while making it, it was still one of my very favorite pieces.

PS. If you are interested in custom piece you can go here or here.

Hank Hill Commission Embroidery

egoodnessDSCN3903
It’s not a secret that I love King of the Hill. One of my co-workers asked me to make this piece for him, and I was more than happy to oblige. I’ve already made three other King of the Hill pieces (1, 2, 3), and really all I needed was an excuse to make another one.

He is, of course, daydreaming of propane in the embroidery. Because of the propane tank I decided to have him wearing his Strickland work shirt, which I used a blue fabric for. I used the same fabric to wrap the hoop.

Cartoon characters, and pop culture references in general, are some of my favorite things to embroider. Keep them coming, guys!

Commission Pieces

egoodness

Since November I have been working on a bunch of commission pieces, most of which are embroidered portraits.Now that I am caught up on all of these pieces I am taking a break from portrait commission’s until May (at which point I will start taking new orders if anyone is interested), so I have time to work on new pieces for my shop, friends, family, and myself. I need to take some time to get my creative juices flowing again and find some new inspiration.

 In the meantime though, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites so you guys could see what I’ve been busy working on the past few months.

com3This one was a gift a couple purchased for their friends who recently were married.
com2This one was a Christmas present a wife gave to her husband. It is them, and their dogs, in their Halloween costumes from one year. This one was fun to do because I tried something a little different.com1I made two of these, one for the boyfriend and one for the girlfriend. They were embroidered wearing ‘ugly Christmas sweaters,’ and wore the shirts to an ugly sweater Christmas party. com5 com4This customer had me embroider her sisters dog. He was the cutest puppy. com6This family used images of this embroidery for their family Christmas card.  com7 com8This is the backside of another couple that I did an embroidery of for Valentines day. I really liked that she made the back just as special as the front for her boyfriend. com9 com10 This one took a long time to finish, but it was well worth it. I’m very happy with the way this family turned out!
