Learning a new skill: Embroidering

Monday, November 14, 2011

I fell in love with these embroidered coin purses at Anthropologie a couple of years back and have wanted to learn how to embroider ever since. I think embroidery is such a cool way to add tons of personality and detail to any project.  My plan is to have a line of embroidered pouches.

I went a little book crazy over the past year and bought any book that had the word  embroidery on it : )  

I just love how modern embroidery is nowadays.

I also love reading through this blog for ideas and inspiration.

Oh!  and if you know of any more good books on embroidering let me know!  A girl can never have too many books right?


  1. Oh so pretty! I didn't realize embroidery could look so modern. I love all the designs.

  2. Wow, these are so cool! I love the ones that are half sketches, half embroidery! Really impressive. Also, I love the first photo, from Anthropologie. Those purses are sweet!

  3. You can never have too many resources! I can't wait to see your new line. To think we all thought embroidering was for old people when we were growing up!

    I am so excited that you got some samples from Katie. I am looking forward to seeing which designs you chose when you start styling with them. Thanks so much for letting me know :)

    Hugs and a happy Wednesday to you, Stephie x

  4. Tori, so did you learn to embroider already? I am really curious about your style!! Love the pic from Geninne, the colours and the texture are so lovely.
    And yes, you made it very clear, embroidering is so CHIC!!
