Back to School: Transform It Today! {Part 5}

Did you start a new hobby a few weeks ago when we shared with you the basics you would need to start embroidering? If so, then today you can add some embroidery to a shirt to give it a new transformation. This shirt was a hand me down for My Princess. It’s a cute shirt, but I decided to add a touch of embroidery to it.Original ShirtI decided on a very simple design using a lazy daisy stitch for the flowers and leaves and back stitch to form the stem. I drew my design on the shirt with a vanishing marker, put the shirt fabric into an embroidery hoop (as much as would fit) and started stitching. It did not take long at all and the shirt had a whole new look. It will look adorable with pink jeans or leggings.EmbroideryTransformed shirtAdding a touch of embroidery to clothing is an easy way to give the garment that extra something special that will not look like anything available in the stores. I remembered something this morning that I still have hanging in the closet. Years ago my daughters were in a production that required them to wear white dresses for a scene in which they were part of an angel choir. I made the dresses with large rounded collars. The collars seemed too plain to me and I decided to add an embroidered design. Of course, since the collars and dresses were white and the embroidery floss was white, the design could not be seen on stage, but up close it was pretty. (And I knew it was there!)Embroidered CollarEmbroidered CollarEmbroidered CollarLook in the closet. What can you add a touch of embroidery to today? Try out those new skills you are learning.
