Embroidery Inspiration






DIY Embroidered Moth
This is fabulous - found on Pinterest, but sadly it doesn't link back



After doodling with thread last night, I'm thinking embroidery today.  I love embroidery, though I don't have much patience.  I really must start on a project.  Here's a few that have caught my eye....

 
These little brooches are darling.  Come across these from the LiliPopo blog.  Must explore what over little lovelies are there.

Fabulous detail on the corner of this blanket, and relatively simple and quick to do.  Love it.  By Green Kitchen on Flickr.

What a charming hoop picture.  Very modern.  From the Feeling Stitchy blog.

sweet house

Loving this little house by House Wren Studio  The roof is such a great way of showcasing different embroidery stitches.

This beautiful butterfly.  Isn't it stunning?  It's from the Crazy Quilting International blog, and I absolutely adore it.

I'll end today's post with one of my own designs.  Very simple stitching, but they go together really well (I think).  I designed it for a kit.  It seems like forever ago I made this, but on looking back I realise it was only last year - Little Tweetheart

Are you inspired to get stitching?

  3. Very nice.

    The top photo looks like it was made out of an old embroidered hanky or ufo. I bet you could copy it.

    1. I adore Dragonflies, have two tattooed on my back. Like them at a distance mind.... can't be doing with buzzy things close by.

    1. I'd like to have embroidery skills, though I am happy to content myself with dabbling in a bit of simple stitchery.
