It's Fri-Yay! Super excited to dance my ass off to Sylvan Esso tonight💃🏼
I've been finding myself at a lot of tiki bars lately, and got inspired to do an embroidered parrot. What better way than to do a literal parrot head? Jimmy Buffett approved.🍹
I actually think the back is kind of cooler than the front. It's cool to see the "behind the scenes" to a piece, especially when it's a tangled mess of thread!
Some work in progress (WIP) photos below.
The long weekend gave me time to catch up on some projects I've been working on (and to start new ones!)
I also had time to go antiquing! I scored this cute, 70's sewing box which is now the home to my needles and threads.
I felt like this black and white photo needed some color, so I gave it a rainbow and let that family see in color.
Here's what the back of the photo looks like, too. Little frayed rainbows!
I started "Sweet" a while ago and finally wrapped it up this weekend. It was my first typographic embroidered photo and was slightly more challenging to finish.
I hope your 3 day weekend was as sweet as this couple!
You can check out my first round of embroidered photos here.
I love when design makes me smile, so I wanted to do a project where I made the design itself smile.
Using some chunky Gotham, negative space and yellow I created a series of typographic happy faces with fun phrases titled, "Type on a Happy Face". Available as prints, tote bags, blankets, cell phone cases and much more in my Society6 shop here.
I dare you not to smile when you scroll through these.
Here's one with a quite literal "fun" phrase.
I'm sure I'll be adding more to this series in the future when I think up more fun phrases. Can't stop, won't stop.
