Embroidery art


milo embroidery

I made some embroidery things! The hoops were a Christmas present for my sister (S) and her husband (C), and then I made the Milo thingy for his nursery. It was meant to just be in a bigger hoop, but then Dave suggested putting it in a frame, so we used this one that was hung in our bedroom (with something else in it, obvs). If I’d known it was going in a square frame, I would have made a bit more of an effort to align the letters properly, but oh well.

The background fabric in both is random bits of thrifted sheets, left over from making this skirt and the lining of this coat. The letters are filled with hundreds of french knots, which takes ages! It’s a bit of a labour of love I guess, it does look good.

    Ja die sind wirklich toll und die Stickart sieht absolut genial aus, da komm ich mit meinem Kreuzstich natürlich nicht ran. Aufgehängt habe ich sie noch nicht, aber habe schon ein Platz gefunden.
