I’m a little late in discovering Julie Arkell.
I found this old “Embroidery” magazine (from the UK) in my office desk drawer, and was instantly smitten with the odd and whimsical, papier mâché creatures she creates (and teaches how to make in her workshops).
They have strange little sayings embroidered on their little aprons, such as “I lost a sock but made a hat”.
Although mind-blowingly adorable, they are also bitter sweetly spooky. I don’t think I could actually have one in my bedroom.
She also happens to be the cutest, kookiest, apron-wearing thing herself.
