137 Times People Were So Proud Of Their Embroidery Projects, They Shared The Results Online (New Pics)

We humans have the unique ability to take something ordinary and add a little extra to it. While this interest of ours has culminated in a myriad of decorative art forms, embroidery is one of those that we’ve invested most of our time and effort in.

You’re already familiar with it even if the name sounds foreign. In simple terms, embroidery is the process of applying decorative designs onto fabric using a needle—these motifs are traditionally rendered in thread and are composed of different kinds of stitches.
