I am super hyped for the next issue of Crafty Magazine because it features an interview with the embroidery artist Michele Carragher of HBO’s hit fantasy TV show GAME OF THRONES which in case you didn’t know- I’m a huge fan of. That’s both the embroidery and the show! Go check out Michele’s website immediately to see why. (This won’t be the last you’ll hear on this subject from me…so keep an eye on future posts).
I’m also stoked to tell you one of my favourite tutorials is appearing in this issue- I’ll be showing you how to embellish shop bought tote bags with shisha stitching, something I’ve always wanted to have a go at.
And If you’re anything like me you’ll want to stitch tiny shining mirrors on everything after trying this eye-catching technique. Check out the mirrored eyes in this skull bag:
One of the things I like best about Crafty Mag is that there is always a lovely cross selection of different crafts to sample and I’m looking forwards to seeing more from paper curling artist Yulia Brodskaya. Isn’t this work stunning?
So look out for the next issue of Crafty (issue 9 out Dec 5th) here’s the cover so you know what you are looking for.
P.S IF you’ve ever stitched up one of my patterns or projects in Crafty magazine, I’d love to hear about it. Get in touch and show me your photos and maybe I can share them here :)
