{Embroidery Week} Inspiration

While I work on another Embroidery Week project, here's some embroidery inspiration for you all. I couldn't resist including the Vogart transfers! The other examples I picked because they're all totally achievable for the beginner, with no transfer necessary. They're also all great ideas for ways of using embroidery on clothing - a skirt border, collar or pocket embellishment, embroidered bow/s on the front of a dress (adorable!), personalised gloves (I also love the idea of embroidering bows onto gloves - wouldn't that look cute?).

    I wanted to pick up embroidery again last week but due to a buzy schedule I alas had to let it drop, but your post is very inspiring.

    I also wanted to let you know, that I have mentioned you in my latest post!

  5. I absolutely love vintage transfers. I need more hours in the day, I haven't done embroidery in ages!

  6. Oh, etsy is so dangerous! So many cute things, so little money! :-) I started an embroidered owl forever ago and haven't finished it. I guess I should get to it!
