Handmade Marathon - Day #16 (nisseworks)

Editor's Note:

Welcome to DAY SIXTEEN of the Handmade Marathon.

Lately I've been thinking more about adding handmade elements into my home.  Stacey has beautiful offerings in her shop, including wall hangings, gorgeous embroidered pillow covers, and even a few Christmas designs. Be sure to view her lovely work.

Embroidered scrollwork heart 3" wooden hoop customized personalized gift  -

Give your heart to a loved one with this unique and customizable embroidered scrollwork heart ornament.

Stretched over a 3" wooden hoop, the heart is hand-embroidered using a scrollwork design that guarantees no two pieces are identical. A piece of vintage lace is included to allow the ornament to hang.

Each ornament is made-to-order and can be customized with fabric and thread choices, so you can personalize your purchase. Perfect for birthdays, showers or graduations, this is a wonderful gift idea for anyone (even yourself!).

About nisseworks

nisseworks began in early 2010 as I searched for something to do after my maternity leave ended. I started out making little pouches and bags, opening my Etsy shop in February 2010. I wasn't quite happy with the work I was producing and over the next year, my business evolved into more embroidery-focused work. I've been embroidering for most of my life, so I kind of surprised myself when I didn't just turn to it as a focus for my business.

Long story, short - I make embroidered wall art. And I love it :)

Hang this bright and colorful piece in any room in your home and you'll enjoy it's whimsical simplicity immediately. The flowers are embroidered in a range of colors and hues, making it the perfect piece to hang in any home.

Stacey Brown, a long-time resident of western Manitoba, comes from a creative family - sewists, woodworkers, artists - and has been embroidering for over two decades. She prefers to create her own designs, specializing in floral and nature-inspired pieces. Stacey and her family live in Brandon, Manitoba.

You can exlpore more nisseworks here:
