Embroidery – Uses

There are many things you can do with embroidery! I thought I’d share some great ideas I’ve employed and seen others use!

The pillow.

Show off your mad embroidering skillz by framing the finished work in a pillow! Functional, trendy, conversation starter! All you need is some fabric for the border, fabric for the back (can be the same fabric!), some kind of pillow stuffing (I use the cheap stuff from JoAnn’s althought I’ve seen more creative stuffing), and the use of a sewing machine!

The wall hanging.

I LOVE what Rachel from Spice N Stitches did with this vintage embroidery. She made a simple quilted wall hanging, not too big and not too small, the perfect wall accessory!


I love how cute and simple these coasters from Linaloo are! Such a wonderful and creative idea! I can’t wait to make my own some day! Just… a little geekier!

Those are some of the ideas I found you could do with embroidery! Have you done anything different? I’d love to hear about it!
