5 out of 5 stars

Announcement   Specializing in hand-embroidered hoop art and DIY embroidery patterns, I've packed this shop full of goodies for you.

Botanical and floral work are my main subject matter but I also love to stitch natural science-themed pieces (think geodes, mountains, antlers, honey bees, etc.), and Harry Potter-inspired designs. I take great care in choosing the colors I use for each piece and love mixing bold and bright colors with soft tones like millennial pink.

I release new, one-of-a-kind pieces here every 6-8 weeks. Each of my finished embroidery pieces is hand-stitched by me over many, many hours. Each piece is stitched with lots of love and exceptional attention to detail, is backed with soft fabric, and can come with a chain or leather cord for hanging purposes if desired.

New embroidery patterns are released at the start of each month. The designs are different every time and capture the same themes that exist in my personal work. Each pattern is available here on Etsy for three months and is then retired, so if you see something you like, be sure to snap it up quickly! Additionally, I have several Harry Potter-inspired patterns in my shop that will be there for the foreseeable future.

Patterns are designed for all skill levels, although some patterns are more challenging than others. Free video tutorials for every stitch I use in my patterns can be found on my website, https://larkrisingembroidery.com/

All patterns include:
+ traceable pattern template
+ color and stitch guides
+ detailed instructions for each and every step of the piece
+ loads of photos, diagrams, and tips
+ supply recommendations

Owning a piece of embroidery hoop art is like having a painting and a sculpture all in one. It can bring the gorgeous colors and bold designs of a painting and brings an additional level of warmth and depth through the texture of the fibers. Embroidery can add the perfect touch to a space where handmade products, time, and beauty are valued.

My embroidery pieces are both contemporary and timeless. My designs and stitching style are unique and modern, drawing on the trends that inspire modern decor and interests, yet embroidery itself has been practiced and valued for centuries.

About

A Modern Mama Maker

For me, life is about gathering. Gathering feathers, seashells, art, books, and houseplants, but also skills, adventures, memories, and friendships. As I watch my young son collect countless sticks and pebbles on our walks, I see the reflection of my own love of nature in his curious spirit. From early childhood, I've felt a pull to create--to feast my eyes on the beauty of the world, mix it with my own feelings and ideas, and use my hands to churn out something new. As an adult, I now recognize that I am an intensely visual and kinesthetic learner; what I see and the textures of my environment have a profound effect on my mood and enjoyment of life. I love to immerse myself in lush, green landscapes and return home to a bright, colorful, and cozy interior where I can reflect on memories made and adventures yet to come.


Throughout my formative years and even during adulthood, I have invested innumerable hours in music. I love to sing in choirs, play the piano, and recently picked up the ukulele. Although my time spent in art classes has been very little, I have tried my hand at beading, watercolor, acrylics, ceramic arts, quilting, knitting, and all sorts of furniture DIY projects. I became enamored with fiber arts in the last several years and began exploring embroidery early in 2015.

These days, motherhood is my primary job and is a role that I love and take very seriously. My son is brilliant, kind, and everything I could hope for out of a child. That being said, parenting does not always fulfill every part of me. My hands and heart require an outlet for creativity that is separate from my job as a mother, but that allows me the flexibility that parenthood requires.

From the moment I embroidered my first piece, all I wanted to do was to make more. The ideas poured out of my brain like a waterfall in spring and have never ceased to flow. I make time for embroidery nearly every day--even when dishes need washing or laundry needs folding. My brain feels relief when I transfer my ideas onto paper and the concentration I put into drawing designs pushes extraneous worries away. The methodical movements of pulling my needle and thread through fabric, the perfect tension of the fibers, and the measured control I have over the work stems the tide of anxiety that I so often struggle with.

Embroidery is the perfect combination of what I need and what I love. It gives me a purpose and sense of accomplishment outside of my role as a mother, spouse, and home-maker. It waits patiently for me when the other parts of my life take up my time. Through embroidery I can contribute a little bit of beauty to the world that gives me so much. Although I will continue to gather other passions and skills, maybe even careers throughout this lifetime, I can confidently say that embroidery will continue to fill my hands in the moments that they are not already occupied by my lovely little family.
