6 Must-Try Embroidery Projects

Who knew embroidery was so wonderful?! Okay, I’m sure you knew. I guess I’m just a little late to the game. One of my crafty goals for the upcoming weeks is to channel the inspiration I found at Craftcation into exploring new mediums. Whether or not my experiments will end up on this blog or not has yet to be determined. For now, these 6 embroidery projects are calling my name!
