Ever since I can remember, I’ve been attracted to fiber and textile arts. It’s the first form of art or craft that I ever tried, and through the years and trends I’ve always tried to incorporate them into my work somehow. First it was samplers, then it was 7 years of knitting….and now I’m doing THESE. 🙂
I am having a BLAST making these little guys! 😀 I started out making them with some of my small metal and wood type – for example, the pendant on the right is a little flower made by Virgin Wood Type, which I printed last week and then embroidered around. I’ve created others from my wood type as well, and I LOVE combining the two mediums!
The others are either just prints from commercial fabrics or fabrics hand-dyed by me, which I then embroider over. And those tiny hoops? Those I get from an Etsy shop called The Creative Muster. When I saw them on Instagram last year, I HAD to have them. They come all the way from Australia, but they’re worth the wait! 😀
