Try It! Maybe you’ll like it!

A few nice things about embroidery:

  • you don’t have to be an artist to do it
  • it’s an inexpensive hobby
  • it makes things pretty, personalized, and unique
  • you don’t have to know how to sew
  • you made it!

Here are just a few examples of how embroidery can really spice up your home!

OR wonderful baby items

You can put ANYTHING on one of these!

Just imagine all of the possibilities! The reason I say you don’t have to be an artist is because there are so many resources out there now with free and cheap patterns made by actual artists. You can also come across some amazing stuff by googling “free embroidery patterns”.
Also keep in mind, you don’t have to get an actual pattern. You can use any kind of drawing you find! Does your kid have a favorite page in a coloring book? Use that! Or a picture from a bedtime story. Really. Start keeping your eyes peeled and you will start to notice how rad certain things would look embroidered on your old purse or skirt etc…

A couple favorites are:

Good luck but most of all, have fun making things beautiful!
