Throwback Thursday to one of my favourite pictures from early days at the studio. This is Mustaq and Rejabul... (slightly scary to realise that I can recognise all the embroiders by their hands), adding Swarovski pearls to the hemline of a wedding dress. To me, this picture is so succinct in showing exactly what I love about embroidery and the process of the craftsmanship: the need to continuously shift your mental setting between nerdy, single minded (maybe focused sounds better;-) attentions detail and the overall look and feel of the design you are working on. That coupled with the I intense teamwork effort, and the way the craft and creativity are completely intertwined. #lovework#gratitude#craftsmanship#handembroidery#embroidery#design#artisans#artisanal#fashion#bridalcouture#designer#teamwork#couturefashion#bestteam#wip#weddingdress#tbt
Day 13: Metallic Embroidery. Super fun, easy stitch that makes a big impact with the metallics. (Video on my FB Facebook.com/DesignerKathyBarlow) Where would you use this technique?
From start to finish, @the_cassandra_complex did such a fantastic job on her punch needle creation! 💓 Be sure to sign up for our February 27th class to learn our modern approach to punch needle embroidery. ➰
Gonna mend the big boy’s pants with pocket patches from some of his dad’s trashed work jeans.
They’re his favorite pair so they’ve gotta look fantastic... so he can enjoy them for the hot minute that he hasn’t grown out of them.
I feel like I can hear him growing while I stitch.
I guess for this year’s portrait I’ll have to pick a different angle because there’s no way in heck I’m gonna try to embroider this elbow tattoo ⚰️ Making this one reminded me that drew I out my contortion girl to embroider but never did 🤷🏻♀️
