More Textile-ish Things I’ve Seen Lately & Liked

Bodega Bags with embroidery

Embroi­dered bags you’d get at your local bodega/corner store. Who is the artist that did this? I only found this piece on the Bom­bay Sap­phire Arti­san Series Face­book.

I love a theme, and it seems this week has been full of tex­tiles. So, why not end as we began? Here are some more tex­tile-ish things that I’ve seen late­ly and liked. They include rugs, coast­ers, even embroi­dery on plas­tic bags.

Tex­tiles are a very com­fort­ing thing to me. I think it’s because we can wrap our­selves in them. They are gen­er­al­ly made of fab­ric, so they pro­vide warmth. (I’m always cold.) My mom did a lot of crafty stuff when I was grow­ing up, so often times I find these things nos­tal­gic.

Most of what I include in these posts are what I’m pin­ning on Pin­ter­est. Fol­low me on there to see more what I’m lik­ing each week.

And, final­ly, this is a project that’s been in the works for awhile. It is a col­lab­o­ra­tive piece of fab­ric that has been trav­el­ing around to some tal­ent­ed embroi­dery artists and illus­tra­tors. Lau­ra McKel­lar is the newest addi­tion, adding the woman in the cor­ner. Sara­jo Frieden and Lore­na Marañón also have tak­en part on this piece! Sarajo’s are in the top left cor­ner, while Lorena’s addi­tion has the beads.

The whole thing will launch at the end of this Octo­ber with some more sur­pris­es. Fol­low it on my Flickr for the time being!
