Pool Party Patch

Not sure why it took so long for me to make a Mokuyobi branded patch but here it is! It features one of the characters from a new fabric design for Spring 2015. This super cool new Mokuyobi Threads 2.5" circle Pool Party Patch will be included in every retail order over $20 before shipping cost. While supplies last!

Robot Patch Process

Check out this new robot patch available now on the Mokuyobi website. We've been rolling out with a bunch of new patches and have a lot more cool ones to come so I wanted to show a bit of the process of creating the patch from sketch to vector to embroidered patch. I thought it would be fun for a promo image to combine the finished patch with the line drawing sketch style where the design started. Have a look!

The Last Bedford

I got an order for a custom Bedford bag in a midnight/neon green combo. Since Bedford bags are pretty complicated and time consuming to make I decided to not make any more custom Bedford bags. Have to make time for big moves! So this is in fact the last Bedford. Enjoy.

Etsy Craft Party

I was asked to participate in a fun mini pre-event at Etsy for their recapturing old photographs themed craft party. Two other NYC based sellers (Harp and Thistle and Mawusi) and myself were invited to choose a photograph which Etsy printed out on Spoonflower fabric. Then we all met up at Etsy HQ in Dumbo to work on our projects and eat snacks! You can read Etsy's blog post about it here.

The image I chose was a photograph of a neon acrylic/watercolor painting I completed for the Brooklyn Art Library's Penpal Painting Exchange. Here's the work in progress:

We took a photo together after we finished our embroidery pieces in their photo booth. Strangely it didn't work so we tried again and ended up with this amazing doubly exposed image! Couldn't have planned it better.

This was all leading up to Etsy's big Craft Party event that they held in Dumbo. I went with my friend Rob and they provided you with a vintage photograph of complete strangers, four colors of embroidery floss, and a needle. Here are the masterpieces that Rob and I made, mine is on the right.

And some closeups!
