This post is how to embroider kids clothes. I use this to transform pieces that have potential.
My friend came to me the other day with two items from her kids closet. She bought them awhile ago, the skirtall from Target, and the pants from H&M. They were cute because they had that neutral color platte that is trending right now, but they lacked any sort of character or excitement.So we decided to embroider these kids clothes to come up with some one of a kind pieces.
I circled back to the idea of adding an embroidered running stitch, (like I had done on my daughter, Emma’s pants, you can read all about that here ) then adding a zig zag embroidery stitch around the pockets of these very plain pair of pants. By adding such a simple embroidery detail, these pants now had a personality!
Embroidered skirt all
The skirtall which is trending at the moment is easy to wear and all you need to do is pair it with a cute tee! Because of this I leaned more to a neutral color palette. I embroidered the edge on the skirt in a Mountmellick embroidery stitch. I then embroidered a super cool neutral rainbow motif on the pocket:
- Smallest arch was done in a Hungarian embroidery chain stitch.
- Middle one in a Knotted pearl embroidery stitch.
- The largest one ina simple Chain embroidery stitch.
- All the above stitches can easily be found on You tube.
These two pieces came out amazing! they went from drab to fab! No other child will own these two pieces. They are original, with a boutique feel. We all know what it’s like to put on something that makes us feel special.
