Hand Embroidery- Handstitching
Hand embroidery is fun and functional, it gives you the freedom to really create on a wide variety of mediums from fabric to wood! You can customize and memorialize with it, it can be cheeky and fun and it can show pride. The origin of embroidery can be dated back to Cro-Magnon days or 30,000 BC.
Embroidery is the craft of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as pearls, beads, quills, and sequins or applique. You will be able to try to do this with your project!
