I was asked by Anya Ferring to embroider the ARTbutt logo on a custom pair of panties. I had a lot of fun with this, as it’s brighter and I got to improvise more with my stitching than I normally do. The idea was to have colors and stitches that would stand out in an editorial photo on the relatively small canvas of women’s underwear.
One challenge I faced with this was that the fabric needed to have a slight stretch to it, since it would be worn. I washed all of my thread to make sure it wouldn’t shrink or bleed and did a test embroidery to figure out how tight to hoop the fabric. I posted process shots and videos on my Instagram each step of the way.
I am excited to see the final editorial photos (as I am not stitching the panties themselves.) You can see (and buy) other ARTbutt pieces, and read all about the idea, here. Check back for final editorial photos by Ventiko later this summer.
