She Draws, I Thread

‘She Draws I thread’ is a collaboration between me and my five year old daughter, Miya. She draws, and I embroider. Miya loves telling stories through her drawings and I wanted to preserve this beyond leaves of paper that can end up as clutter.

It’s amazing where a child’s mind goes and how their imagination in all their innocence is a mix bag of feelings, thought and uncanny observations of the world – sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant, other times fantastical but always wonderful. (sometimes eyebrow-raising too!)

Embroidering her drawings and stories helpS me immortalise these precious moments.

Have a drawing or a child’s art that you want to keep forever? I’ll turn doodles on paper into something special through needle and thread.

To order, drop me a request at Commissions.

About Miya

Miya brings me so much joy. She is unwaveringly kind, loving and adventurous. She loves drawing and I love listening to her stories. We crack silly jokes about her drawings and musings. Her mind astounds me – always filled with creative, imagination and wonder. Below are some of her favourite stories and drawings that I’ve recreated in embroidery.

Star vs The Forces of Evil – March 2017, Disneyland Tokyo

This is inspired by the cartoon series that Miya enjoyed during a family vacation in Tokyo.

“Star Butterfly is on a mission to save the world. She is more than just a princess. She is kind and knows a lot of magic, always surrounded by good friends. She has to protect her magic wand and fight evil monsters.”

Rapunzel and Talking Carrot – March 2017, Disneyland Tokyo

Rapunzel was out in the park having a nice stroll when she met a talking carrot.
She muttered in a strange language to the carrot. No one knows the secret language. They will take over the world.
