Current crush: colorful, wearable birds by Paulina Bartnik. Aren’t these gorgeous? Paulina is an artist and animal lover who creates textile bird brooches up to the finest detail using wool and thread.
First, Paulina shapes her wool using a technique called dry felting. After using a needle to give the wool the exact thickness and texture she needs, she paints on the felt with a needle and then finishes up the details with embroidery. And the results are so amazing <3
To see more of her beautiful work, visit Paulina on Instagram and Etsy.
These gorgeous pieces by Louise Saxton are a proof that anything old can be brought back to life and flourish as a part of something new. And beautiful! Using old materials from the home such as vintage embroidery, old paintings, linen and wallpapers, Louise creates astonishing, colorful installations that are adored by many.
My Monday crush: beautifully embroidered ladies Sheena Liam. The simple lines and long locks of hair give these pieces such a wonderful characer! Sheena Liam is a fashion model who has always enjoyed drawing and started to work with needle & thread two years ago. Her playful portraits are usually based on photos of herself, which she sketches out to detail before stiching them onto fabric hoops where her long haired ladies seem to come to life.

I love the bright colors that pop out of these beautiful embroideries by Sam Eldridge. Stitched sceneries with tropical botanicals that look like they will be blooming out of their fabric hoops soon. Love!

Inspired by travels and her Chilean background, artist Katy Biele creates embroideries with bright colors and beautiful designs. I love how her work is rich of playful textures and details.
