Ready for more machine embroidered goodness?
Today’s style is freestyle machine embroidery, which is the kind that’s done by guiding the fabric by hand, not by a digitized machine embroidery file. Elizabeth Kelley is a master at this, and I am totally smitten with her machine embroidered flowers.
Her work mixes everything from found fabrics to paper, and it’s all positively delicious.
I think that the freestyle embroidery technique is just perfect for capturing the organic nature of blooms, and it probably doesn’t hurt my adoration that she dyes her own fabric and embellishes everything by hand. That lace and organza applique? So gorgeous.
