I have sewn and played with threads, fabrics, patterns and such for as long as I can remember but I have never really attempted any form of embroidery. I totally love the look and texture of embroidered items but for whatever reason, had never attempted to try until I was asked to create a custom tote for a child’s Tae Kwon Do uniform. I had a choice to either appliqué a Tae Kwon Do image or after giving it some thought, embroider. I decided to embroider an outline of an image.
I believe I have found a new hobby 🙂
Although the child for who the tote has been created for is very young, I decided to make the tote a little larger only because of my experience with a tote I had previously made for my daughter. Children grow and as they grow, so do their uniforms and/or gear.
I believe my daughter was about two years old when I made this tote. It was well used as you can tell by the current condition. It was cute and functional until she grew which meant her gear and then the bag became too small and I am pretty sure we just used a shopping bag after that. When creating the Tae Kwon Do tote, I am glad I remembered the ballet bag and the short duration of its use.
Thanks for stoppin’ by and hope you have a fabulous weekend!
