Hand Embroidery

Nor­mal­ly I work dig­i­tal­ly and I love it for so many reasons:

  1. Ctrl+Z (right?) so easy to edit
  2. No stor­age
  3. Inex­pen­sive
  4. No mess
  5. No need for a lot of space

But, at the end of the day, work­ing dig­i­tal­ly can not take the place of work­ing tra­di­tion­al­ly. I love work­ing with my hands and hav­ing a tan­gi­ble prod­uct that I cre­at­ed by hand.

Over the past 3 years, I have been search­ing for a medi­um that could alle­vi­ate the issues I have with work­ing tra­di­tion­al­ly. All 5 of them.

Embroi­dery checks off all of the box­es so I am cir­cling back to it. Right now, I am work­ing on find­ing a tech­nique and/or a style that pleas­es me.

Above is a piece that was done based on the cur­rent style I am work­ing in dig­i­tal­ly. Below is a piece that it is more tra­di­tion­al. Do you pre­fer one over the other?

I hope you will fol­low along with my journey.
