You don?t need to watch Portlandia to know that crafting has seen a mega comeback. But embroidery? Even we wouldn?t have predicted that one.
Turns out, the grandma-approved, centuries-old handicraft is back big-time. Here, some new ways to get in on the trend.
Pillows Embroidered pillows might seem old hat, but Sally Cram?s ($70 to $125) are like nothing we?ve ever seen. The London-based embroiderer takes an almost Aztec approach to her designs, and the result is nothing short of stunning.
Wallpaper Embroidery goes off the wall with Claire Coles?s gorgeous hand-embellished papers (pricing upon request). The Wallpaper Collective, meanwhile, offers a more modern and geometric 3-D version ($270 per 13-foot roll).
Jewelry We love British artist A. Alicia?s one-of-a-kind statement necklaces ($257, with shipping), but we?re also pretty into Anthropologie?s mass-produced version ($68), which boasts a summery, Polynesian vibe.
Books Love The Feminine Mystique? Now you can get a paperback copy from 1974 with an embroidered cover ($85), thanks to Etsy shop owner Jessica Reed, who stitches up vintage books, magazines and photographs.
DIY Embroidery kits for ho-hum welcome signs are practically a dime a dozen. We?re way more into Lisa Grue?s easy-level Bobcat design ($80), which is cool enough for the decor enthusiast and budding crafter.
