Have you ever tried embroidery? It’s not hard, but there is a technique to it. There’s a great post on how to embroider at Instructables. Though, there is always the option to do loose handstitching, which is not quite as technical – and there’s no rhyme or reason, which is nice for loosey-goosey types! Whichever your preference, embroidery adds a pretty touch to home decor, fashion and other craft items. A perfect example is this hand stitched bag. Previously boring, embroidery turned it to fabulous! Are you interested in adding some accents to your items? Click through the jump to see more!
