Thread Nests Artist Trading Cards

I’ve embroidered a few Artist Trading Cards this summer. After a while even small pieces becomes quite a body of work. Little experiments. Artist trading cards as sketches. Thoughts that are not yet finished, and still they are finished work. I love that.

The first two I made with these “thread collections” were pink, and the threads creates little thread nests. The threads are left overs from dying fabric in a class. The tangled thread nest looked to fun to throw away.

I’ve stitched these thread nests to the pink dyed fabric, attaching each thread with a few little stitches. And I added some small beads to the second one. Both have been traded IRL, which is extra fun.
