Blog > Inspiration on World Embroidery Day

  Hello, stitching world! I hope you are having a good weekend. It’s a cool and cloudy day in Cape Town, perfect for embroidery. Tomorrow the 30 July is World Embroidery Day and so I thought it was a good occasion to show you some new creations.  A Daisy cuff or bracelet Here I combined silk ribbon embroidery with a felted band for a Marguerite daisy bracelet and I hope this will inspire to make lovely things for yourself too. It was fun and easy to make..... This is one of the projects in a new book that I created with the super-talented, Toody Cassidy and Razaan Jakoet from Cape Town  The Art of Felting and Silk Ribbon Embroidery.   DAISY_BRACELET What do you think of it? It’s lovely to wear in the winter or fall with a long- sleeve jersey....    and some colourful Nasturtiums to make your day :)   Nasturtiums on silk   And more inspiration for you on this very special weekend for all embroiderers across the world.... a Pansy case on Nuno felt, also featured step-by-step in the new book.   A sunglasses case   Textile Artist_Felting This book will be out next month.... and you are welcome to read more about it here Adding another piece to inspire you, Fuchsias on a wool and silk background. Click on the images to enlarge...   Until next time, enjoy tomorrow and isn’t it nice being part of a global community of embroiderers? Diagram of a Fuchsia-Di van Niekerk     Have fun! Love Di     love
