This does NOT bug me!

It started with me looking closely at the magnificent wardrobe from the HBO series, Game of Thrones.  OMG!!!!  That's when I came across Michele Carraghere, the Master Embroiderer for the series costumes.  What a job!  Well deserved by what you see below and more HERE

That got me going!  WOW!  Look at the fiber insect world I found...

Mariana Popova, a wonderful Bulgarian artist, explores the insect world with her detailed felted creatures.  She has some other subjects she felts HERE


Eleanor Rose is interested in wasps, bees, butterflies and I love her display cases.

Here are some of her beetles.

 Clare Moynihan creates her insects on little felted balls.

Hannah Haworth's hand-knitted creatures, all I want to do is give them a big hug.  She has also worked on some little ones, a group of 50 life size bees

Fiber insect specimens are studied often, but these moths are a real stand out!  Yumi Okita masterfully embroiders and constructs these beauties.  There are more of these to be found HERE

Rene Sears has some exquisite stumpwork/embroidery insects, just magnificent!

and of course, Jane Nicholas, the queen on stumpwork butterflies, moths and delightful bugs.

Do you have any favorite fiber bugs?  Have them fly this way so we can see!
