2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wasted Dream...a reality! on: March 06, 2011 05:02:08 PM
Last December I participated in my first art show featuring a handful of my embroidered pieces. I had an awesome night and even managed to sell some works, which I was blown away by. Here's a post I did for the flyer for the show. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364688.msg4282693#msg4282693 It was all embroidered, then cut into individual pieces, pinned in place, scanned, printed then photocopied. I wanted it to have a DIY punk flyer feel but still using embroidery as the main focus.

And here is a few photos of the newer pieces I had in the show and some pics from the night.

All done using either two threads, single thread or a single thread split in half or quarters. I actually finished her about 30mins before we opened the doors. Phew.

And this one is called Reminder. Yeah it kind of looks like a penis upon first glance and no that wasn't intentional but hey, it sold!

Me with all my works.

Everyone who participated in the show.

Newest project. Wanted this one to look a little bit more like the original sketch so no clean lines etc. Was fun to not be such an anal freak! All done with single thread.


Inspired by a pretty great movie.  Grin

Thanks for all the kind words! Good to know I'm not working my way toward insanity for nothing.

This took me two seasons of Deadwood to complete....stab you embroidery.

Hairy details.

Update: I forgot to mention...the eyebrows, eyelashes and a few other details are done with a single thread split in half. Not a method I would really endorse as it's like trying to embroider with a strand of freakin' fairy floss. Very VERY easy to snap. However I believe the extra effort and push towards insanity was worth it in the end.
