Embroidery Designs and Motifs!!

Embroidery is the art or handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Embroidery is most often recommended for caps, hats, coats, blankets, dress shirts, denim, stockings, and golf shirts. Embroidery is available with a wide variety of thread or yarn color.

A characteristic of embroidery is that the basic techniques or stitches of the earliest work—chain stitch, buttonhole or blanket stitch, running stitch, satin stitch, cross stitch—remain the fundamental techniques of hand embroidery today. *

These are some of Embroidery Samples that I have created by using 30 stitches which I have recently learned.... you can also find the Embroidery Motifs below some of them; So, that you can recreate the same at your home. The Type of Stitches used are mentioned above each Embroidery Sample.
