Embroidery: Custom orders

While I am taking somewhat of a hiatus with custom embroidery orders right now, I recently finished up the last of the orders I had from this summer.
Here’s a little peek at them.

A custom birth announcement. The coolest thing about this one is that it is the 3rd I’ve done for this family. I did two last year for a pair of sisters and their family welcomed another baby girl this spring. It was such a gift to be asked to create this third for the trio.

A 50th anniversary. I had a daughter come to me and ask for a custom 50th anniversary portrait. This one was based on the one I did a couple of years ago for my aunt and uncle’s 60th. I even was able to find a matching metal oval hoop!

The theme for this one was daisies. So I had fun stitching loads and loads of lazy daisies!

an embroidery update

Some of the things my hands have been stitching lately…

I’m currently working on a 50th anniversary commission and I’m so excited with how these little people turned out. It was a rough start to figure out how to do their faces, but I think I got it figured out!

Continuing with my button stars series, I stitched up a portion of a song by Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings

And I participated in the Freaky Flower Swap on the &stitches blog

And I leave you with a picture of my silly campers. This was my first time doing a sewing camp and wow! was it ever exhausting but fun. This one was called Mustaches, Monsters and Masks.

custom birth announcements

The last few years I’ve stitched up quite a few of these original birth announcements mixed with embroidery, felt flowers and vintage buttons.

Birth announcement: flowers and vines

I had a customer approach me via etsy to ask if I could design a completely embroidered version of this spring flower version for one daughter with a matching winter themed one for her other daughter. Always ready for a challenge I eagerly accepted and I’ve spent the last month or so having so much fun stitching them up.

Here’s a view of the set together. I ended up ordering some custom hand dyed threads from colour complements on etsy and they are amazing. I love them so much and I’m excited to have found another source for unique threads.

For Willow’s spring themed embroidery, I stitched a mix of flowers and vines around the tops and sides.

For Winter’s winter themed embroidery, I started with a pinecone and added a mix of evergreen and holly.

embroidered birth announcement

It’s always one of the most refreshing things ever to see something that you had pictured in your mind come together via your hands. That was the case with this birth announcement.

I had done a subway style version to begin with and I did love how it turned out, but I knew I wanted to do a more girly version. After doing some research and looking around the web, I decided that I wanted to try my hand at a mix of felt flowers and embroidery.

I added a few vintage buttons to the mix, plus some lazy daisy stitches and I’m stunned with how well it turned out.

These will be up in the shop in the coming weeks so you can get your own custom made version!

hello stranger

This last month has been a doozy. I feel like I’ve been away from daisyeyes forever and it has been a nice reprieve to pick it back up again; albeit slowly. I’m still technically on call for this interim teaching position so I’m still kind of in limbo until after spring break. After spending nearly 3 weeks back in a classroom, we packed up and drove all the way to Florida to hang out with the Mouse and nearly a bagillion other people. We had a fantastic week and had so much fun, but I was super happy to be back home. I’m slowly becoming more of a fan of instagram and you can see some great pictures from our trip here if you become a follower.

I’ve slowly had a few things in the works for the shop and hope to keep slowly rolling them out over the next few weeks.

First up is this rainbow birthday banner:

WIP...123's for the banners to be

I love how these numbers look and can’t wait to get the whole banner completed. The banners will say “I AM ONE” or TWO or THREE etc. You get the picture.

 

Going along with these rainbow banners is this little mini bunting I made. The letters are all hand embroidered onto mini pennant banners and it makes the perfect little reusable decoration for a high chair, regular chair or anything else you can think of.

These little banners are already in the shop and ready to be made just for you!

 

Last up is the first of a few different styles of birth announcements. This is the subway style version. It’s all hand embroidered in a cool variety of fonts and fully customized to the specifics of the little dude or chick!

They measure 9×12 and are also in the shop ready to be made just for you! Turn around time for these is about 2-3 weeks.

That’s about it for now. Hopefully I can be back to regular postings in the next week or so…but that proves to be seen just yet.

Off to watch some Alias (yes I’m like 10 years behind the times, but thank goodness for Netflix!)
