I’ve been wanting to try my hand at embroidery for some time now, so I thought that I’d embroider some aprons for a couple of my friends as birthday gifts. I basically watched this video that I found on Pinterest and kind of did my own thing. My fingers and right forearm were a bit sore afterwards, but this project was so much fun. I cannot wait to practice a bit more and embroider everything from tote bags to plain white shoes to clothing. I hope this gives you some ideas and if not, Pinterest is always there to help you out (at this rate, I feel like Pinterest should sponsor me for how much I mention them on this blog). ; )
Basic materials you need for this project:
- aprons (I got two denim aprons for around $7.99 here)
- embroidery floss ($0.39 each from my Michael’s)
- embroidery needles
- chalk *optional (I used chalk to help me plan my general designs)
Each apron took me about 2-3 hours, I’d say, and it was the perfect opportunity to turn on some Netflix (I had Scrubs on, love that show) + listen to some music/podcasts (I recommend the MOTH podcast). Overall, it was a soothing and relaxing time that I cannot wait to experience again.
Have a blessed morning, day, or night, y’all. Thanks so much for hanging around.
