1. Embroider White Canvas Sneakers

Who would have thought that regular, white canvas shoes can be turned into colorful and wonderful embroidery? We fell in love with them the moment we’ve seen them. If you want to try this one out, here’s what you need besides the white canvas shoes – embroidery floss, beads, scissors and embroidery needle. This project might take you more time, especially if you’re new at embroidery and sewing, but it’s definitely worth the try.

2. Embroidered Star Stud Shorts

When studs are not enough, add some embroidery and like in this case, be inspired by Wonder Woman! For this project, you need a measuring tape, scissors, ruler, marking chalk, star patches and star nailheads. You can have your shorts done, or even get an old pair of jeans and cut them to the length you want your shorts to be. The shorts are going to be the perfect piece for the next summer or if you live where is hot all the time you can wear them right away!

3. Embroidered Espadrilles

We all know how good is the feeling when you’re walking in shoes that you find exrtremely beautiful – especially when you know that it is you who decorated them! If you have an old pair of espadrilles that you want to throw away, think twice. Adding embroidery is a nice way to refresh the look and make them appear as brand new. For this project, besides the espadrilles you need embroidery threads, needle, scissors and pencil.

4. Embroidered Dress

This is a whole DIY dress, not just the embroidery and it looks so nice! Adding a little color on a white dress is really a good way to decorate. To make your own dress like this one, you’ll need 2 yards white fabric, embroidery thread (you’ll need two of each color to make the neckline and hemline), thick needle (with an eye big enough to thread the embroidery thread through it) and a white thread.

5. Embroidered Denim

Wow, patches sure look amazing on denim, don’t you think? Again you will have two options – two sew it yourself or use iron-on applications. However, the needle and the thread might prove to be a better options because it will hold the patches longer. Either way you choose, your jacket is going to look like an expensive, designer jacket. It’s awesome how a small DIY project can make things look more expensive!
