i love these embroidered dolls! great concept 🙂 it reminds me of the fabric cutout ones that my mom used to make for me.
Impeccable stitching.. if only I could stitch like that 🙂
I love Sam.
The coolest and cutest one so far! (which is a lot because they all are so adorable!)
She is adorable! I love it and need to work on my embroidery skills! (and possibly spelling).
does she ever!
I love the retro feel with the more modern sport!
rad! I was expecting roller skates, all the better that it’s a board. Skateboarding is totally fun and all embroidered dolls should have the opportunity. 🙂
I was looking forward to seeing your last post come together. She is lovely!
I so love all your embroidered girls!
These are so awesome. I would love to make one for each of my little daughters. Any plans to make them a downladable template?
It’s wheeeee wonderful!
How very rad! Love it.
Aw, she’s sweet.
Hurray my name is Sam! 😀 She’s so cute 🙂
Great scrolldown payoff, Hillary- my first thought was “cute, roller skate embroidery!” but I adore the skateboard surprise!
Wow! She is so cute! Would you ever make these into kits????
Fabulous. I’m loving these embroidered girls!
How do you do such a neat chain-stitch?
I just love these embroidered ladies, they are so cute, I just learned how to do crewel, needle work is so much harder than it looks, at least at first!
The stitching is impeccable! How do you do it? I think her arms are my favorite part. Lovely.
I just found your blog and i love it. Your Pointy Kity is sooooo cute:)
Wonderful! As usual!!
I love your new embroidery work Hilary. I tape my drawn designs to a window and then tape the fabric on top, then I trace onto the fabric that way. It is a make-do light box, and technique I used all the time at art school.
She is so cute..and the fabric background is perfect! But you knew that…
so sweet, hillery 🙂
So charming…love the retro-ish look of them (they remind me of old fashion book illustrations)
Very, very cool- Great job!!
So so so super cute!
what a cute idea!
so cute and very pretty
Next time you better put a helmet on her.
Love this one!
Hey, these are SO sweet!
A thought on transfering designs–there’s a technique stamp carvers use to transfer a design to a block of carving material that MIGHT work with fabric. Worth a try.
Take a sheet of vellum or tracing paper. Use it to trace your design. The softer/darker the pencil lead, the better.
Now place it pencilled-side down on your fabric. Scratch the back (especially along your pencil tracing lines) with a fingernail.
With a little luck, the penciling will transfer to the fabric.
If it doesn’t work, oh well…. :^)
I absolutely adore this small “pillows” you are making lately, especially because they send me back almost 30 years, when my mom made me a heart shaped decortive pillow with a stiching just like these ones. I am from Portugal and if you would like I can send you a picture of it. I have just brought it from my parents house to give to my daughter (now 4).
Keep up the lovely work.
