Inspiration: Embroidery

I think it may be because of my recent productivity in the form of sewing some Christmas decorations, but I am very taken with all sorts of embroidery.  I have a plan to make some quotation embroidery, like the example seen here and in my research / inspiration gathering, I have found some superb resources and images.

Take Sublime Stitching for example.  Who wouldn’t love to have some sexy librarians on their wall or cushion or bedspread?

Or what about some lovely pinups and panthers?

I also really love Egg-A-Go-Go’s embroidered cushion which was on Etsy (now sold although Sarah has kindly sent me the images so that I can share them with you).

I love how the cushion combines hand printing (the bird), buttons/quilting and embroidery to make a cohesive design.  It’s simple but elegant and skillfully done.  Sarah’s Etsy shop is saved in my favourites for sure!

  1. Wow! Those are really lovely.., especially the bird, it’s like a 2D image bursting out into 3D, makes me want to take up embroidery, 😉

  2. I have just put in a big wholesale order with sublime stitching USA for a selection of their patterns! They are gorgeous! I also love their stitchable stationery kits!
