Greenman Embroidery

6th June 2012 | 0 Comments

Just finished my satin stitch, filled Green Man. I’m exceedingly happy with the way this piece turned out, along with the framing job. I didn’t actually time myself but it was at least 30 hours of stitching. It is done on white cotton muslin with double stranded cotton floss in various shades of green brown […]


Embroidered Coasters

25th August 2009 | 0 Comments

I just finished these (well mostly the machine needle broke about 1″ from finishing the fourth so I’m taking that as a sign to stop crafting and get home things done instead).

Inspired by the Dragon Embroidered Faux Leather Messenger bag (also for sale) but for those days when you want a spacious purse but don’t need to be carrying much more than your wallet, cell phone, maybe your current book and shopping lists. It’s small but generous dimensions will allow you to carry anything you need […]


Faux Leather Dragon Embroidered Messenger – Laptop Bag

7th July 2009 | 1 Comment

I am very proud of this bag. The embroidery (courtesy of Urban Threads) is a dragon sitting on the flap of the bag which is also dissected by a piece of faux leather trim. My scrap bin holds wonders. I found this brown/black leathery looking pleather while rummaging through my stash. It screamed to be […]
