Wonder Thunder




And now I will sing the praises of Wonder Thunder! These AMAZING portraits are from a sewing / printing duo named Wonder Thunder (Meagan Claire Hall and Sasha Barr) that free-motion embroiders onto felt-- in this case, yearbook photos. I love line drawing-- and there is something interesting and cool about using yearbook photos and interpreting them via a sewing machine. Who's that toothy devil in the bottom pic, you ask? It's me in 11th grade. This is a new favorite of mine. I've already ordered a second batch!

These were done with a sewing machine!?! And I thought sewing a simple skirt was hard!?!

You goofball. These are a hoot. Check out Maria Guzman from Houston. Not sure if she is taking commissions. Maybe she will make you a monster portrait. Have a great vacay!
