Book Description

Embroidering your own clothes with the exact design you'd like adds a fun hint of personality to your wardrobe - try stitching dogs, flowers, slogans or patterns on to any garment.

Using a range of stitches, techniques, materials and designs, Customize Your Clothes guides you through which tools to use, which stitches work best with certain designs, and also teaches you how to embellish with a range of materials to add a special personal statement to your items that costs next to nothing.

Projects such as a plant T-shirt, a monogrammed sweater and a fun star hat make up this collection of ideas and inspiration for personalising your wardrobe. Even learn to decorate an old sweater with pom poms and cut shapes out of a pair of jeans you've had lurking in the back of your cupboard - the possibilities are endless, you just need some thread, a needle and a bit of inspiration!

By customising your clothes you will have your own unique collection of items all embroidered to your taste, colour, style and design - hand-stitched by you.

About the Author

About Emma Warren

Emma Warren studied textile design at university, experimenting with other crafts but always finding herself gravitating back to embroidery. Following her studies, she worked as a freelance embroidery designer before starting her own company in 2016 designing embroidered clothing and accessories, which she sells online worldwide through ASOS Marketplace and Etsy.



Us dressmakers know that if you want a new outfit, you'd better get your needle and thread ready to reinvent one! A favoured technique for this is to embroider motifs onto clothes, like trainers on page 66- and this title is jam-packed with inspiration to do just that.
