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!

Embroidered Goodness: California Pillow in Progress

TGIF! TGIF! TGIF! I’m so happy it is Friday.
I’ve got a bunch of embroidery projects to catch up on this weekend, and one of the pieces I have to finish is an embroidery of California that I’m making for one of my awesome customers. The embroidery is going to be turned into a cute little throw pillow. Here are a couple of sneak peeks for you!

It’s been such a fun piece to work on, and I haven’t made anything like this since my Florida and Michigan pillows that are for sale over in the etsy shop.

Have a great weekend, all!

Embroidered Florida Pillow

When I first started Too Crewel I decided I wanted to make a series entitled “Know Your Roots,” where I would embroider the states and their landmarks. I made it as far as Michigan and Florida, then I moved onto something else. A few months ago I turned the Michigan embroidery into a pillow, and this week I did the same with my Florida piece.


I’m pretty sure I gave up on this series because I started these when I first really started embroidering, and it used to take me so long to finish a piece. It takes me about half the time now though, so I’m thinking it is time to start them back up. I just need to order some more linen for them, and pick the next state.
What state would you guys like to see?

ps! You can check out more photos and details of the Florida pillow on Etsy, where it is now up for sale!

Tiny Cactus Embroidery

One of the first pieces that I made when I started Too Crewel was this cactus pillow… I always thought it was pretty goofy, and the pillow is getting pretty beat up so I decided to make a tiny cactus embroidery as kind of a nod to it.
I think I’m going to attempt to turn it into a magnet, I’m just trying to brainstorm the best way to go about doing it. I’m either going to finish the back off with felt or cardboard and then apply the magnet to that.

What do you guys think, magnet or wall decor?
