Stitching Stories: From Pinterest Pins to Personal Creations


It’s been an eventful week in my embroidery corner, and I’m excited to share the latest developments in my ongoing project.

This week, I decided to challenge myself by exploring a new technique I’ve been eager to try – Highlighted embroidery on printed fabric. With a fresh set of vibrant threads and a vision in mind, I dove into the world of dimensional stitching. The added depth and texture it brings to the design are simply mesmerizing. For my embroidery project, I rely on Pinterest to get new ideas. I got this idea from this online platform and I also saw it on an Indian television show.

I became fascinated after seeing it on the television program and looked it up online. I originally looked for it on Instagram but was unable to locate the precise pattern I was seeking for. I then looked for it on Pinterest, and after doing extensive research, I discovered and selected this picture as my source of inspiration. Here is the link and the image I discovered on the platform.

I began working on my own project after discovering the specific pattern – Highlighted Embroidery. I started by choosing the threads that would best complement the pattern on the fabric, which should be visible on the printed fabric. adding images to show my own development –

Proceeding towards the next one, I was discussing with one of my friends about the project work I need to finish for one of my classes. He was interested in finding out more about it, so when I showed him my embroidery patterns, he became quite interested in what I had created. Then he asked me to make something for him, I had no idea at that time what to make for a guy. I started searching something for him on social media platforms and, then I saw a truck embroidery on Pinterest, as my friend is in trucking, I felt very happy that finally, I can create something for him. Now I have started working on it. The idea which I saw on Pinterest was –

  1. This looks great! I am sure that your friend will appreciate his hoodie. What are you planning on putting on it to back it to ensure the threads don’t get caught on anything? I never thought of using fabric that had a pattern on it to follow to do the embroidery. Hope that you were able to complete your work on the hoodie this weekend.

    1. Yes, Mike, I will also continue working on it after the class. From the beginning of the project, I expressed my strong desire to learn embroidery, which has been a passion of mine for a long time. Now that I have the opportunity to pursue it, I am definitely committed to doing so. Thank you!
