Friday Instagram Finds, No. 2


Welcome back to Friday Instagram Finds! I've found three awesome embroiderers from Instagram to share with you this week that I think you're going to love!

@merriweatherc
Danielle, of The Merriweather Council, is an absolute dynamo! In addition to her gorgeous hand embroidery work, she's also one half of She Percolates, an awesome podcast that highlights amazing women and their successes.

I have a thing for granny chic cabbage roses, and pairing that with typography is fresh and fun!




Danielle's phrenology hoops are one of the most genius things I've ever seen, and has me thinking, "Why the heck didn't I think of that?!" They are seriously so clever, and any word could be stitched in it.




Sometimes it's the simplest things that make the biggest statement. The colorful lines on these pendants would pair so well with any outfit.





@wildflower_threads
Christa of Wildflower Threads creates beautiful embroidery, often in miniature in her sweet hair accessories and jewelry.

Look at all of the stitches that Christa incorporated into this, "love wildly" hoop! It's a colorful and modern version of a sampler.


This necklace pendant may be small, but the little scene with flowers and grass is absolutely precious!




These embroidered bobby pins are so fun! They are so dainty and ladylike.





@thekitschystitcher
Sara, The Kitschy Stitcher, is fearless in her embroidery, and she tries fun techniques and flosses to create fun and original pieces!

Even though we only get to see a little bit of this piece, it has some great stitches going on! The French knots (one of my favorite stitches) in the basket look like a bountiful bunch of flowers spilling out, and check out that gorgeous chain stitch for the bike chain - how clever!




Check out this crown in miniature full of bling and metallic floss!





Do you see what I mean by using fun techniques? Sara used watercolor pencils to create depth to this portrait of Bacon, the French Bulldog.
