What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Looking Up

Sew Beautiful

Today’s gorgeous embroidered art is by Etsy seller Sew Beautiful. The artist uses beautifully-colored embroidery floss and loads of French Knots to create gorgeous, natural-looking scenes, many from the perspective of looking upward from a forest floor. I find them exceptionally lovely!

The artist embroiders her colorful scenes on transparent organza, which helps create the illusion of distant sky and open space.

“I love to embroider nature, trees, flowers, and animals, especially capturing breathtaking scenery. Living in the English countryside, I am surrounded by nature. During one of my nature walks, I found myself looking up at the trees and how the sun shone through. I knew I needed to capture this on an organza hoop to mirror my vision.”

  1. These are beautiful. I especially like the ones that echo that feeling of lying down and looking up at the tree canopy.

  2. I seriously cannot sew to save my life, but I can certainly recognize pure talent when I see it. These are amazingly beautiful. I wish I could look at something (a blank canvas, piece of fabric, piece of wood….) and see it’s potential. I love these! Thanks for making my Monday brighter. ❤️

  3. Having done crewel embroidery when I was younger, those French knots are a lot of work! She has not only talent, but patience. These are all so pretty.

  4. At first I thought the knots were pearler beads, but now I have some inspiration next time the kiddos want to pull them out 😀

  5. I have never seen organza used quite like this (and I’m an embroiderer)…how entirely fabulous!
