Patterns: Button embroidery

Embroidered button display hoop - originally uploaded by doe-c-doe - inspired by Haylie Waring for Design*Sponge

Buttons and blackwork are possibly a perfect combination. doe-c-doe, who stitched this beautiful piece, was inspired by an original piece of artwork by Haylie Waring for Design*Sponge. The original piece of artwork was for a rectangular frame and was a print out on card, as opposed to doe-c-doe's embroidery. I think both versions are beautiful, you can download Haylie Waring's here and doe-c-doe's here.

  1. Wow, that's beautiful! I've been getting a little burned out with knitting, but I can no longer stand to just sit and watch TV. I have to have something to do while I'm watching. I've really been thinking about taking up embroidery. This is just the nudge I needed to get going. Thanks for sharing the links!
