Lately, I’ve been inspired by The Curious Cosmos and I have started to embroider things because I think sewing words and quotes onto fabric like this makes it all the more impactive and poetic.
Here are some that I have done:
I’m hoping to sew some of my poems like this because it is such a permanent and poetic way of presenting them and it makes them feel very real and true. I think I would feel like a very real poet seeing it embroidered and framed on my wall. It is like calligraphy but more physical being able to feel it as well as read it gives my poetry a new dimension.
I think I’ll also try embroidering some words and quotes in braille for my great aunt and anyone, really.
