Humayrah Poppins Embroidery + Best of the Web

by Grace Bonney


Before we head into the weekend, I wanted to share the work of embroidery artist Humayrah Poppins. Humayrah shared a photo of her work in our #dstexture Instagram challenge and I have been turning to her feed ever since for inspiration. After training at the Royal School Of Needlework, Humayrah opened an Etsy shop and makes incredibly detailed (and beaded) embroidery. She’s been posting bits and pieces from her insect collection lately and they are just too beautiful for words. If you need a little bit of inspiration to get you to the weekend, click here to check out her latest work online. Until Monday, have a wonderful weekend! xo, grace
