crafters to follow on instagram

5 Unique crafters you should be following on the Gram

I love to craft but I don’t do it all the time. I go through phases. I’ve had a sewing phase, writing phase, origami phase, painting phase, mosaic phase, macrame phase, etc. You get the idea. I’m no expert but I really enjoy the process. Instagram is great for finding new ideas for new hobbies and projects. Here are a few of my favourite crafters that you can follow on the Gram. These would also make amazing gifts. Not related at all, but it’s my birthday next month.

Just watching Jesiiii paint is amazing. I have no idea how someone can have such a steady hand with a paintbrush but here we are. She paints very colourful pictures, each with unique puns. She also has a fluffy kitty, called Digby that features too. You can check out her store here, and prices start at US$14 (R215).



Georgia must have a lot of patience. She creates intricate artwork by cutting paper and the detail is amazing. She also offers online courses, which I have on my crafting to-do list. Prices start from £10 (R186) per month for two templates. You can view more of her art and buy some from £14 (R260) here. 


Embroidery fascinates me. I bought the thread and printed the pattern to make an embroidered eggplant emoji but I have yet to start that project. Ksenia creates all sorts but I love her cityscapes the most. What’s really cool is that you can buy PDF patterns at her Etsy shop to try it yourself.

Prague pattern (that is going to retire in two weeks), Prague embroidery and new Prague design. I’m still working on a new design, but you already might notice that it’s going to be a combination of two other designs. View on the Charles bridge, swans and Prague castle. Prague embroidery on the multicolored fabric is available for purchase. I’ll ship it after August 3rd, when I’m back from Riga, but you can book it now in DM . . . . #faimyxstitch #embroidery #etsysellersofinstagram #etsyshop #etsy #embroidery #embroidered #embroideryhoopart #embroiderydesign #embroideryhoop #embroiderersofinstagram #embroideryartist #embroideryart #landscape #handembroidery #hoopart #needlecraft #needlework
