Having featured Maricor and Maricar’s lettering art some years ago, it seems like a good time to check up on the sisters to see what they are doing now? They started making handcrafted projects just for fun, but their eye-catching needlework has interested magazines like Desktop and Meanjin. “All our embroidery work starts off as a sketch but depending on the type treatment we’ll either colour it up digitally by vectorising it, or use watercolours to create the gradient mash ups. We then trace the design onto fabric which is normally a cotton plain weave fabric (although we have used linen twill and denim for special projects).”  There are also some additional steps to their process like washing the fabric after it has been sewn, or simply pre-washing and then sewing.
