Beautiful and well-made with high-quality thread that is soft and shiny. I put mine on as soon as I got it and it's holding strong. This is my second set : )

I love this piece. It's so detailed and beautiful—the little hand even has nail polish! I've wanted to buy one of these for awhile, and seeing it in person helped seal the deal. If you love embroidery, emoji, and free-form compositions these are wonderful objects to own.

I love this wall hanging! It's the perfect addition and pop of color to my bedroom. It's so we'll made and I love the geometric shapes and lines.

So pretty to look at, so satisfying to pet, and the color palette makes all the different knots stand out beautifully!

I couldn't be happier with my embroidery! Some of the elements are extra puffy, and I find myself reaching out to gently poke them every time I walk by it. Reminds me of passing notes and doodles in class... thank you!

Not beginner friendly.
I reached out to the seller w a question and she referred back to the PDF, which did not have the answer.
I think making the outlines of the pattern thicker would help identify the colors to their section more easily. Labeling the color number directly onto the pattern would work better as well.
Professionally, I'm a web designer (at Etsy!). I spend my days working in pixels, writing functions, calculating grid systems, and creating structure and order. It's amazing, fulfilling, fun work, but in the fall of 2013 I realized that I needed to balance out all of my digital work with something physical. I missed creating things that were tactile and had texture and were something that you could keep forever. Growing up, I was always hacking up t-shirts or inventing craft projects, but as an adult I had abandoned making things with my hands for making things that were pixel-perfect.
I wanted to use embroidery to find a way to bring something digital into a physical context. Embroidery makes everyone think of their grandmas (especially embroidery in hoops), but emoji are really only used by the digital elite. Embroidering a poop emoji was the most ridiculous thing I could think of. What are the generations after us going to think of an elaborately-constructed poop hanging on the wall? Only good things, I hope.
The thing about making something with your hands is that each piece looks slightly different; this started out as something that terrified me but through this project is now something that I appreciate. Embroidery is so vastly different from the work that I do for my career in the best way possible.
Each piece is hand-sewn in my apartment in Brooklyn. It's usually something I do on the weekends or when I come home from work to relax. Making one of these pieces takes the length of a train ride from New York City to Washington DC, or about 5 episodes of The Good Wife.
Here's a post I wrote about the genesis of this project: http://jessicaharllee.com/notes/emoji-embroidery-a-post-mortem/
