Handmade Highlights – Santa Tea Towel


Tis the season! Thismomloves hand embroidered the Snowstorm Santa design on a white linen dish towel. I am always looking for sweet and thoughtful handmade gifts to give, and this piece would be perfect! It’s always great inspiration to see how you can create some of your own hand embroidered gifts, or if not, buy some from a local craft fair and support the handmade community this holiday season!

Handmade Highlights – Undead Rockabilly


Even though Dia de los Muertos was a couple of days ago, I couldn’t help sharing this awesome hand stitched applique sugar skull from mrscreativegypsy. He’s just one little piece of the original design, but her stitches have added so much character, he’s amazing on his own!

Handmade Highlights – Book Cover


I love this sweet hand stitched book covers by Benhy Costello. The peacock feathers look great, and it’s such a creative way of covering cherished books!

Handmade Highlights – Engraved Heart


I love the story behind this piece of hand embroidery. Zoe’s mom Kim was pregnant in the hospital, waiting for her to be born while she stitched this woodgrain heart. What a great way to pass the time while in early labor!

Handmade Highlights – Mendhika Medallion


Debbie stitched the Mendhika Medallion with such delicate detail. The subtle bead work is a lovely touch. These designs are very complex, and her dedication to the craft of embroidery shows.

Handmade Highlights – Cherry Blossom Ship WIP


Adoring this in-progress shot of the Cherry Blossom Ship design. I love the varied embroidery thread weight that Hal Calico used to make the ship really pop. It looks so sophisticated stitched all in cream.

Handmade Highlights – Earth Mother


Instagram user Erika (end80), shared this gorgeous shot of her nearly finished WIP Earth Mother. I love all the different textured stitches used to bring the piece to life. This piece makes me want to sit under a tree on a warm summer day and stitch all afternoon. What a great summer project!
