Fox embroidered pocket
If any of you have ever tried your hand at embroidery, check out this Fox embroidered pocket, isn’t it just so adorable!
A great way to bring a plain shirt to life, and a bit of fun too… and embroidery is so therapeutic – something you can do whilst watching telly in the evening, or watching the kids play in the park – and you can be as creative as you like. We suggest going to pinterest and find illustration styles you like, copy them out, and pick your embroidery threads…* and get embroidering!
We have been to the charity shop and bought a few plain bits which we’d normally overlook, so this holiday we’re going to have a go at embroidering our own designs… so excited to get started!
It’s a very relaxing craft, and one that can be undertaken by quite young children too, start with the basics. This “Amazing Stitching Handbook for Kids: 17 Embroidery Stitches 15 Fun & Easy Projects book” for all the basics looks lovely, and a great way to get started with embroidery too…
