Our #BookOfTheWeek is Beautiful Embroidered Accessories by Lexi Mire Brantman. Meet Lexi, #embroider a Sprouting Coffee Plant Tote and #win the book from Melia.

Hi Cut Out and Keep folks! My name is Lexi Mire Brantman and I am an artist living in Jacksonville, Florida with my husband and two kitties. While my roots are in photography, my career in embroidery began thanks to Instagram. I started embroidering hats and other accessories for fun in 2017, and when my photos went viral on Instagram, hundreds of people wanted to order a hat! I stitched custom pieces for years, and when it became obvious that the demand was larger than I was able to keep up with, I started developing DIY tutorials, so my followers could create their own embroidered items. Many hats and projects later, I was given the opportunity to write a book to share how to stitch in my signature style. When I am not embroidering, I love experimenting with printmaking, painting and writing.

I love the sky light. It gives me lots of sunlight. Who can really complain about extra vitamin D?

Funny story, we didn't realize until this interview that we were wearing pieces from both of our mother's vintage wedding dresses! Crystal is wearing her mother's blue wedding dress and Aubrey's skirt was part of her mother's wedding dress. The Tarot Card Tote Bags were made by us, both outfits are vintage and handmade and both of our shoes are from Nasty Gal.
