Thanks to my daughter who found a post about Allene LaSpina’s charming needlepoint pins on design sponge, I want to show you some lovely needlepoint eye candy today.
Her line of embroidered pins is called Urbahnika. She says it “is a line of hand embroidered brooches created by Allene La Spina & inspired by my Colombian roots & the fashion and architecture of NYC.”
You can see them in her Etsy shop Stitched on perforated metal and stitched mostly in Four-way Continental, the pins cover a wide vareity of patterns, including Bargello-like zigzags, traditional fabric patterns, plaids, geometrics, and lots more.
Going to her shop gets you, currently, two pages of her pieces. Click on any item and you’ll see super-sized pictures.
She also accepts custom orders. I wish I had a life that could use several of these, but they woulds be wasted on the cats.
