This mini embroidery hoop necklace is very similar to the purple and gold one I shared last week.
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!
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!
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?”
This piece hangs in a 10″ hoop, and is up for sale in the shop!
A 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.
This piece is up for sale in the shop, so check out more photos there!
I have another necklace design in a mini hoop to share today. This one is in an oval hoop, though! I’m obsessed with these little ovals and I can’t wait to buy some more.
This embroidery is done on a white linen, that I had dyed with blue and gold acrylic paint.
You can see more on this necklace in the shop, because it is for sale!
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.
Happy camping, all.
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.
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.
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.
I did the tooth patch on a recycled pair of jeans that has a floral pattern, and used purple floss.
This patch is done on tan fabric with purple floss, and maroon.
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.
Awhile back I made quite a few “snarky” embroideries, and these “whatever” hands were a part of that series.
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.
This piece is available in the shop!
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.
