Witch Hat Embroidery

I have another Halloween embroidery to share today! This one is a witch hat with the phrase “witch life.”

This little embroidery is done in a 4″ hoop, and is done on white medium weight linen (my favorite fabric to embroider on).

I used black, purple, and a deep pink embroidery floss.

Check out more info on the piece & photos in the shop where it is for sale.

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!

Purple and Gold Mini Hoop Embroidered Necklace

egoodness

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
Recently I ordered a new set of mini hoops from Dandelyne, this time I got some horizontal ovals, and they were really fun to work with.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset
For this one I used four different shades of purplse and maroons, and also a little be of gold embroidery floss.

To make this I just outlined the shape of the hoop with a water soluble pen, and then I just started randomly filling it in.

Stay tuned for more this week!

Tina Belcher (Bob’s Burgers) Quote Embroidery

egoodnessProcessed with VSCOcam with t1 preset
Recently I made a Tina Belcher (from the cartoon Bob’s Burgers) quote embroidery that states “I”m a smart, strong, sensual woman.”

IMG_1280
On the fabric I splattered it with gold paint to give it a little something extra.

IMG_1282
For the hoop I painted it black. The floss that I used is a pearl cotton, and one of my favorites- a red ombre. I find myself wanted to use it for everything.

Skeleton Embroidery in Two Hoops

egoodness

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
A couple of years ago I made a skeleton embroidery on hand dyed fabric very similar to the ones you see above. The difference was that it was in a larger hoop, and I only did from the waist up.

IMG_1117
For this set I hand dyed the fabric with red and gold acrylic paint. In one hoop I did from the waist up, and in the other I did from the waist down.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
The hoops are only 3×5″, so for the floss I had to use only three strands, and two strands.

Pieces like these are some of my favorite to do. I love doing all of the intricate details.

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.

Sheet Music Embroidery

egoodness

IMG_0910
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.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
I ended up just doing the chorus, because any more than that would have been very long and taken forever to complete.

IMG_0919
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.

Ouija Board Embroidery (Hoop Art)

egoodness

IMG_0176For quite awhile I knew that I wanted to embroidery a ouija board, I thought it would lend itself nicely to this medium. Finally around Halloween I made one!

IMG_0192
I am pretty happy with it, I’m thinking of doing another one for myself, and more for the shop. I was also thinking that they would make good patches!

IMG_0109I wish that I would have taken better photos of it before I sold it, but at least I snapped a few!
