  • I wouldn't have the talent to do it myself, but I've purchased a few blouses and dresses with embroidered floral patterns.

  • I haven't done my own clothes yet, just never get around to it, but I've done children's clothes. Here is a picture of some of what I've done.

  • Embroidery on old clothes is a fantastic way to make something old look new again. Designing hand embroidery on clothes takes substantial sewing skills, so be sure you are comfortable with sewing and embroidering.

  • I did a few Christmas designs on shirts when my sons were babies and have embroidered names on clothes. I have done many embroidered wall hangings.

  • I wish I had more examples, but YES!! These are machine embroidered, and I did hand embroidery on some when I was younger.

  • OH, the little jacket on top was made out of a man's t-shirt. The bottom is a tank top that I added lace to top and bottom, and machine embroidered the butterfly on. I also made the jacket over the tank out of a t-shirt.

    This is my shirt that I've just embroidered by hand.
