She Inspires Me!

I love running across a new blog showcasing someone’s amazing talents!  Melissa Crowe at checkout girl  is one of those people. I was just introduced to her and I just love her fun style of appliqué and embroidery.  Especially how she incorporates the hoop as her frames and sometimes has the appliqué extending off of it, or mimicking the roundness.

felt4 My favorite part her amazing skill. Her portraits.felt1Someday when we have extra money… I want one.  I think it would be so cool to see my whole family sewn up like this!  I would try if I thought I could even do it!  felt2She’s inspired me to try some of these flowers that she explained in this tutorial on some crocheted hats I just finished up… hope to show them to you soon.  She’s also inspired me to design some of my own patterns in a style similar to this with additional embroidery. I’ve ran across some great sayings lately that I want to become a way of life, and I want to frame them in something like this.

felt3She showed her process here of how she goes from a sketch all the way to the end in part 1 and part 2.   So cool. I love it when people show me how they do it, their creative process.  So you have to check her out and go to her etsy store little pink house and see her work. She doesn’t have a whole lot in there for sale, so check out what she’s already sold too.  felt5 Better yet… if she inspired you at all too and now your itching to try your hand at it, go here and try your hand out at her giveaway for the above kits!
