So, let me tell you how I fell in love with embroidery! A few months ago, I was flipping through a magazine at the doctor’s office and fell upon this:
And that was it! I thought that is was beautiful, and that it was something I could do; embroidering an existing pattern! Because, let it be said, I cannot draw to save my life! In art class in middle school, we had to draw a cat. I drew a sitting cat, from the back 🙂 Creative idea but the teacher did not much care for it. Oh well.
Since reading the article about embroidery, I have made a few bags, and embroidered one side, just a touch of embroidery. The point is not to cover the fabric, but to enhance its patterns. Like this:

I am about to start a new one for my daughter Noa 🙂
Have a great day! And create something, anything!
