Embroidery: I was made for you

A couple of years ago, I took my first embroidery class. I seriously thought it was going to be boring, but I had to take it since it was necessary. At first, it was tiresome. Three hours of just learning different ways of embroidery, I was like “God, help me!”. As the class kept going, I started to find a new love for embroidery. I did not see it as a torture anymore, but as an amazing way of art. I even wonder how long it took all those people, that had to work with designers, to make an amazing embroidery dress.

As I said before, embroidery is such a hard and fascinating way of art. You can do it handmade or with an embroidery machine. Since I don’t own an embroidery machine, I do it the old way, handmade, just like they did in Egypt, Iron Age Northern Europe and Zhou Dynasty China. Well, not just like them. They had an amazing high standard craftsmanship, which I definitely don’t have.  
But since I was so captivated by this new found type of handicraft, and how good I was (said by my teacher, not by me lol) I decided to recently create a line of head pieces, hairpins, belts, etc. called Jolie Jolie Fille. You can find it at ( ) and on Facebook  ( ).

So here are some of my favorite pieces made by other designers and me.
