Embroidery Inspiration!

Hi lovelies-

To get back into the swing of things, I went through a jillion pages in the embroidery flickr group to get my mojo back and it worked as always! I love to look what other people come up with, cool techniques they are using and new ways that people are using embroidery. I am always trying to think of new ways to use embroidery and I love to see how other people think.

Here is what caught my eye:

This litte Zebra is amazing made out of felt and the velvet stitch. You can see more details here.

I have been wanting to embroider a map for the longest time, how rad would it be to embroider a map while on a road trip and stitch all of your favorite places and the route you took?!

I love how much texture this piece has:
Star of the Morning  finished!!

Embroidery on clothes is the greatest thing ever:
Embroidered Dress

Embroidery on pictures is pretty amazing too:

I really want to try incorporating fabric like this into my embroideries, Lucky Jackson is so amazing!

Hope you enjoy my inspiration as much as I did!
