Often when we grab a new embroidery design, the first thing that
comes to mind is where we’re going to stitch it. Will it be on a
pillow? A tee? Maybe it will make an awesome wall hanging. The world
has a serious shortage of awesome wall hangings.
What we think about a little less is how the
designs themselves can be used in all kinds of new ways, whatever
you decide to stitch them on. To pull these off, you don’t need any
extra equipment, or even any real sewing skills, and they can be
used for hand and machine embroidery alike. All these trends just
use the awesome potential of embroidery you might not have thought
of until now. We’re sure this is what MacGyver would do when
confronted with an embroidery design challenge equipped with just
the design itself. We’re pretty sure MacGyver does embroidery.
Today these new design trends are modeled by our lovely
digitizing diva Danielle. Danielle is the head of our digitizing
department, makes a fantastic model, and is likely totally bonkers
(Exhibit A). Luckily, we’re all crazy around here. She’s going to
showcase 13 of our favorite ways of making your embroidery more
awesome, just by using the design itself.
