Inchies crazyness

Hello

Do you know what inchies are ?

Basically the same as ATC but the size is different. You have to stitch and decorate a tiny surface 1"x1".

It is very challenging and some artists on the web use to make really pieces of art.

For a swap with my EGA 's chapter, I stitched 15 inchies using only one technique, my favorite : Luneville embroidery.

See ! You can click on each picture to enlarge it and see the details


These are the blue collection

These are the lace on black collection


These are the black and pearl collection


These are the silver and black collection


And finally these are the silver, pink and black collection


I used spangles, beads, gold and silver threads, and lace.

It was really fun to do. Now I'll send them to our inchies queen, and I'll wait for the one stitched by my group.

I can't wait to see them !!!!

Hi.. I made my way here from Stitchin' Fingers. Your inchies are so pretty. I'm not familiar with this type of embroidery, but I like shiny things so this may be something I want to check out. Thanks for sharing.

Your inchies are wonderful! I dug into my files from several years back, and found some we used for napking ring inserts - but we didn't call them "inchies" back then. I made earrings last years for Christmas - tiny but pretty! Your English is fine - my daughter speaks French, so could help me with your other site. I speak Spanish, but no French.
