patricia larocque's embroidered patches
The French knot is often used when embroidering pretty floral scenes, but Lyon-based Patricia Larocque (aka ffembroidery) much prefers using the technique to craft horror-inspired patches instead. Ugly cry faces, along with snakes and other slightly demonic symbols are Patricia’s signature style – a result of her obsession with horror films and sci-fi. In 2019, she also credited her style to the crippling existential dread and anxiety she regularly feels (relatable). To stick one of her weird and wonderful pieces on your duds, head over here.
