✂-Designer's Tip of The Day-Lost Art of Embroidery

Hand Embroidery was once considered a "granny" thing to do, but with the resergence of sewing, crafting and the popularity of DIY, embroidery has made it's way back into the hands of a younger generation. 
Embroidery is a great way to add a little something to a garment or an accessory!  You no longer need to use the patterns of yesteryear (little ducks and bunnies), there are some really good, modern patterns out there- Sublime Stitching by Jenny Hart is a great place to start.  This rose is from an old pattern, but I've embroidered it onto a new skirt!
Happy Stitching!!
