Last year I did an embroidery of a Ouija board, and this year I did a second one, but with a little bit more of a Halloween feel to it.
I did this embroidery on white linen, and splattered it with red paint. The hoop is wooden, but I hand painted it black.
This embroidery has sold, but you can expect to see more like it.
This embroidery was one of my favorites to do. I like the idea of mixing hard and soft, which is the essence of this embroidery. I feel like women are often associated with being dainty, and told you have to “sound like a lady.” This piece is a response to that.
This is done on white linen which has been hand dyed with black ink. The red of the letters is done with an ombre embroidery floss. I also hand painted the wooden hoop.
This piece has sold, but I plan on making more!
Hi! I’ve been awful at updating (it’s been 9 months, awful is an understatement). I’m still embroidering, though! Instagram (follow me @toocrewel) makes it easy to not update, because I can post what I’m working on as it is happening. I remember when blogging was the main wait for me to show my work, and I miss it! So, here I am. Today I’m sharing with you a little embroidered necklace I recently made!
This little guy is probably one of my favorite necklaces I’ve made to date. The embroidery hoop itself is made by Dandelyne (Sonia has created such a community with her little hoops, seriously check her out!).
I did the embroidery on a medium weight white linen, and used mustard yellow, black, a silvery purple, and gold embroidery floss.
I have this necklaces listed in my shop, and since I updated last my necklaces are actually cheaper! They are now available for $15 +shipping.
