Hello! I wanted to talk today about something I’ve become obsessed with. And maybe you have to? That is – Embroidery! I love it on clothes and shoes and I especially love embroidered home decor.
Is it just me or does it seem to be everywhere these days? I feel like it’s part of this trend toward more handmade goods I’m seeing this year. I would love to learn how to embroider. It’s one of the craft/diy books on my wishlist. For now, I can buy some pretty embroidered items. Here are some easy ways to bring a little embroidery into your home this spring.
By the way – this week has been a little slow (and short) with posts. I’ve been out of town (see that first picture there?) and trying to spend some quality time with the family.
Blogging can take over your life if you let it. I’m still trying to figure out how to balance family life with building a blog life. Still not there but working on it! I’ll be back to my old diy self next week (I hope).
This one is easy. There are embroidered pillows everywhere! I love how they add texture to your pillow decor. It gives your couch or chair that certain handmade, boho look.
Here are some of my favorites.
Embroidered Table Linens
Spring is also a time when the possibility of dining outdoors becomes more of a reality. I love a pretty outdoor spring table setting. Try adding some embroidered napkins or an embroidered table runner. Here are some pretty ones!
Embroidered Wall Art
I think my favorite of all are these adorable embroidered hoop wall art pieces. You don’t have to keep them in the hoops, but I kind of like that effect. Plus it’s a built in frame. This shop on Etsy has diy embroidery kits in the prettiest patterns.
