Curio: Film and Thread and Scarlett Johansson Pillows

Alexa from Pop Elegantiarum here with your weekly film craftiness. I've shared items from the glorious threadiverse before, but there are so many wonderful film-inspired embroidery pieces out there that they can't be contained in a single post. Some are simply clever, others downright artful. A selection, for your viewing pleasure.


Moxiedoll specializes in handstitched happiness. Here are her odes to Donnie Darko and Office Space.


Mr X Stitch is the king of contemporary embroidery on the internet, and his Phat Quarter embroidery group on flickr often swaps movie embroideries. Here are some of the results (pictured above)...you can guess the films.

Zachary Newcott, a.k.a. The Awkward Unicorn, made this Memento cross stitch so he could "imagine the confused faces of the people who haven't seen Memento" after spotting it in his bathroom.

MafiosaGrrl is responsible for these sublime Lebowski stitches.


Allison Manch embroidered Some Kind of Wonderful on a vintage hankie.


Finally, if you want to sleep with Scarlett Johansson, you can buy this from Merritt here.

NATHANIEL R said...

also agreed on the beauty of that Lebowski stitch... the fullness of Julianne with the simple lines of Jeff. love.

it looks like Kate Winslet, not like Scarjo

hmmmm. i guess it does a bit. But the outfit/hair is totally that Oscar / Globe year when Scarlett wore the red and Mizrahi felt her up.

I was thinking that it looked like Winslet, but she never wears tops like that.
