I recently rediscovered embroidery after having forgotten about it for some time. A few years ago, when I first discovered Jenny Hart’s work at Sublime Stitching, I experimented a bit with embroidery, but I never really knew what to make out of it. The random embroidered fabric pieces went in a box and got forgotten over time.
In the last weeks I started noticing embroidery again, thanks to embroidery artists Tessa Perlow and Sofia Salazar, whose modern and artistic designs tempted me so much, that I bought my own Kantan embroidery needle to try out a new (and faster) embroidery method. I like the chain stitch it produces, but I still have to figure out how to best use the needle. A embroidery hoop that can be fixed to a table might be helpful, as you actually need both hands to work.
I'm reposting this one because I hated the quality of the previous image… I'm sorry I'm a slave of my obsessions 😑 /// probably my favourite color combination lately. #embroidery made for @rkottur 💙❤️ Immmmmmmm going home before the end of the month, and wont be taking any orders until april… sooooo… if you're thinking of getting something, please, please do it before the 10th 🙏🏽😗 ph by @tizianopier
I made my first trial piece in one sitting, without noticing how the time went past, totally captured by the work. It’s definitely better suited for continuous lines than single letters.
My next plan is to create a shirt inspired by this t-shirt:
I am using vintage embroidery thread that I had in my stash and some simple unbleached cotton.
