hi all!
wow, it's been a long time.  they took my craftster away at the day job and my nights have been so full of stitching and sewing for my new diy venture, my imaginary boyfriend.  so busy!  anyway, i've been trying to figure out a way to mix the felt applique that i've been doing for my design line with my love of doing portraits and this is what i've come up with.



i found the image in a magazine, it's the singer jenny lewis.  at first i didn't realize it was her, i thought it was just some model.  but as i was making the pattern i was like, "hey! that's jenny lewis, cool."  it was really just a test to see how it would work and i'm really happy with it.  next i move on to children and pets.  i hope to soon make custom portraits available on the site so i need to build up that portfolio.

thanks for looking!

before the image was even half loaded, I knew it was Jenny Lewis.  Great Job!  So pretty. . .

Wow - that is incredible! Shocked  Is that all embroidery and felt?  How did you get all of those amazing textures in the mouth and skin? I'm in complete awe here.

You continue to amaze me.  Your stuff transcends the medium of embroidery in the best possible way. 
This is my favorite thing of yours other than the Louise Brooks portrait you did. 
Eh, I sound like an embroidery stalker, don't I?

Wow, amazing. I don't know anything about embroidery so seeing what looks like all these textures is really really cool and unique. How big is this piece?
