|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 we’ll be exploring the work of the one and only Woolly Fabulous, aka Odile Gova. So prepare yourself for some awesome embroidery and lots and lots of color!
See what I mean?
Odile creates brooches and other lovely things out of felt. She adds gorgeous details with embroidery and beads.
She has also turned zippers into embellishments rather than a fastener.
She seems to draw inspiration from nature, and she is able to find ways to make her materials work for her designs.
This Blue Jay is fantastic, but the little feet made of zippers? Wow. I love it.
There’s a lot of things that a creative person could use these mushrooms for – obviously, since Odile has sold of bundle of them in her shop. Here’s what she did, though, with the help of her daughter:
Created a TERRIBLE case of athlete’s foot.
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!
