A Stitch in Time

Embroidery is having a bit of a moment in illustration as well as on the catwalk. Whilst I have a major soft spot for floral embroidered hankies and table clothes, it’s bold graphic embroidery that’s inspiring me at the moment. I loved Jillian Tamaki’s hand embroidered cover for Emma, Black Beauty and The Secret Garden. tamaki cover emmatamaki cover secret garden

MaricorMaricar’s embroidered typography is genius.

I find it very relaxing and satisfying, so I’m hoping to do much more.retro embroidery
