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.

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!

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.

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

Be chill!

Rachel from Blade Runner Embroidered

egoodnessIMG_1278A couple weeks ago my boyfriend Bryan and I decided we wanted to make some pieces together. We wanted to try out the free motion foot he had gotten me a couple of years ago for my sewing machine, but we were both not the best at it. So, he drew Rachel from the movie Blade Runner on fabric for me, and I hand stitched it.

This is done in a four inch hoop. The reference photo for it she was sitting in a dark room with a little bit of smoke floating around her.

Camp Sweet Camp Embroidery

egoodness
IMG_0734
This Camp Sweet Camp piece was another commission I had over the holidays. The purchaser bought it for her friend, who owns a campground. I really loved doing this piece, and I am 100% envious of her friend that owns a campground. That would be the best “job” ever.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
The purchaser said she wanted it to be very cutesy and sweet, like an oil needlepoint of a “home sweet home” piece you might see.

Happy camping, all.

Feather Embroidery

egoodness

il_570xN.660015343_su1g

I’ve been embroidered different sizes and color variations of these feathers for a couple years now. I keep going back to them because they are fun to embroidery, and it’s a fun way to play with color combinations.

il_570xN.659891680_9wm8

This piece is in a 3″ wooden embroidery hoop, on a rust colored linen. The feathers are done using light blue, teal, mustard, and brown.

You can see more photos of this piece in the shop, where it is for sale.

Embroidered Patches

egoodness

As soon as it started to be jacket season I made a bunch of embroidered patches, because you gotta patch up that jean jacket! I did a few designs, a tooth, a female butt figure, and a skeleton hand.

il_570xN.659887230_g0hz
I did the tooth patch on a recycled pair of jeans that has a floral pattern, and used purple floss.

il_570xN.660007927_f2gh
This patch is done on tan fabric with purple floss, and maroon.

il_570xN.659867210_q4zj
Lastly is the skeleton hand, this is done on tan fabric with teal floss.

There is one of each of these designs patches left in the shop, for $5 each.

Whatever Hands Embroidery

egoodness
il_570xN.669512729_cw4m

Awhile back I made quite a few “snarky” embroideries, and these “whatever” hands were a part of that series.

il_570xN.669385816_7fom
The piece is done in an oval hoop that I painted black, and done on white linen with a rust colored embroidery floss. For the outline of the hands I used a full six strands, and for the inner lines I used three strands.

Ghost World Embroidery

egoodness
Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 8.47.42 PM
I finished up this embroidery a few weeks back, it is from the graphic novel Ghost World by Daniel Clowes.

IMG_3843

This piece is pretty small- it hangs in a 4″ hoop. I had to use various sizes of embroidery floss to get the detail, ranging from six strands to two strands.

This piece is also for sale, see more of it here.
