Embroidered polymer

Sobrepena on PCDaily

Angeli Sobrepena from the Philippines rekindled her childhood interest in cross-stitch by integrating it with polymer! She creates her design, leaves holes for stitching with embroidery floss, and bakes the clay.

It looks like Angeli finishes her pieces with a backing of felt to hide the thread on the back (or the backing could be an oval of polymer that she rebakes).

These make cute crossover projects for our embroidering friends who have a hard time putting down the needle! Find more of Angeli’s work on Flickr.

    Thank you so much Cynthia for featuring my work!

    I just recently got back to working on my art after more than 2 years of “maternity leave”. I got pregnant in 2011, and now that my darling daughter is a few days shy of her 2nd birthday, I have time to create again.

    This post is just what I need to get my mojo back! Thank you!
