These stunning moth and butterfly sculptures are the creations of Japanese textile artist, Yumi Okita. The North Carolina-based designer creates these large pieces using different materials – cotton, feather, faux fur, embroidery thread and painted fabric. The pieces are sold here in her Etsy shop, which is currently showing a sculpted poppy that may be the start of a botanical series. Anxious to see her impending creations.

We always try to make our gift packages special so we thought of trying to make fabric hang tags. The ones pictured above were created by UK-based artist, Claire Sounes, who writes on her Etsy profile:
“I love designing and making items by hand. I like using traditional British fabrics especially Liberty Tana Lawn combined with linen and vintage buttons.”
You can purchase her designs here on Etsy under the brand, Clair Sounes Stitch and also here on Folksy under the shop name, Tokenhouse.

Pegboards has a new function for me now after seeing this embroidered wall decor created by multi-disciplinary design studio, Tripasai Architect. The wall is a series of tiny dots embroidered with colorful cotton yarn in rhomboidal shapes transforming into leaves and flowers. The walls enhance the entry lobby of a Bangkok private residence.
