I am a sucker for all things Star Wars and all things Scrumptious Delight. (I have two of her cotton candy creatures hanging next to my mirror over my kitchen sink. Friends always tell me how cool they are!)
Boba Fett by Scrumptious Delight.
Look at how she made the fierce bounty hunter Boba Fett so hopelessly adorable! She is truly a master plush maker.

One of the best things about being a thread maker is seeing what people make with the thread. People often stitch what they see around them, and apparently we are surrounded by bugs. There are a lot of needlework bugs out there. I think we are part fascinated by them, part grossed out by them, part anxious to control them, and part amazed by the intricate details of bugs, so we capture them in…
Hi everybody! It’s Saturday, and you know what that means – take a moment to enjoy Woolly Fabulous’ Felted House and then enter!
NSFW SATURDAYS WILL CONTAIN CONTENT THAT IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK!
IF YOU READ THESE POSTS, AND ARE OFFENDED, WE’RE SORRY BUT WE DID WARN YOU!
Hurrah! The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show is happening next week and I’ve got a stand! I’ll be partnering up with Young Embroiderers to host an Inspiration Station, where we’ll have cool things on the walls and we’ll be teaching people to cross stitch!
Featured artists in this year’s exhibition include:
Amy Fredman is a textile artist from Kansas City, US.
“I practice a form of thread painting using a non-computerized home sewing machine. My intention is to approach the use of stitch placement from the perspective of a painter. With the careful distribution of sewn color gradients and layers, I am able to express depth and what appears to be color “mixing” as well as achieving texture…
Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.
This Princess Leia design by Urka is terrific – upcycling a vintage doily as well! #doublewin
See the original Craftster post here, and be sure to come back next time for another great pick from the forums!
It’s a lucky time for those of us who love embroidered artwork. We are witnessing the emergence of a hugely talented artist.
“even nightingales cannot live on fairytales,” 5 x 5 inch hand embroidery on linen.
It’s not that she is new to art — Michelle Kingdomhas been making art her whole life. The LA-based artist grew up in a creative family and earned a BA in Fine Art from UCLA. But until…
Shadow work is a delicate but simple technique that makes use of sheer fabrics to great effect. It was hugely fashionable in the 18th century and had a little burst of fashionability in the 1930s but seems to have all-but vanished since then.
In the middle of the 18th century, it was fashionable for wealthy women to wear fine white gauzy aprons made from silk and fine cottons such as muslin or…
Let’s talk Log Cabin quilts. Log Cabin quilts are almost as popular today as they were they first emerged as a quilt style (sometime during or just after the Civil War in the United States, in the mid-1800s).
Okay I have to come clean, this is a completely self indulgent blog post. Yes, I thought it would be interesting to blog about plush that incorporate sewing and needle felting skills and yes, I like to read what other plush artists have to say about their work. Mostly though, I just adore the work of Jennifer of Violetpieand I had questions I wanted to ask..it seemed less stalkery through a blog…
