Mr X Stitch Presents: Beefranck’s Emporium – The Doll Farm
|Share the love...||
Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace. So without further ado, I welcome you to…
Hi everybody! This week is all about the weird and wonderful things that come from The Doll Farm run by Heather Louise Bennett.
Each of her creations are hand made and unique.
I can’t help but wonder how she gets her ideas.
She uses vintage fabric and buttons often, which adds even more character to her work.
Every piece is a work of art.
Some seem a little sillier than others.
They all seem to have a story to tell. Some of them have images sewn into them that add to the story, like the Farmer’s Wife pictured above.
Beefranck is the Queen of Ironic Stitching and is responsible for a lot of stuff on www.mrxstitch.com, the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet. She is also the top selling pattern designer in the MrXStitch etsy store.
She can often be found hanging out in the Phat Quarter group on Flickr and co-hosts Emergency Pants, a podcast that is not for the faint hearted!
