International Embroidery Design #1: The United Kingdom

The British Isles have a rich history of needlework including popular tone-on-tine textures. A form of whitework, Ayshire international embroidery is largely associated with Scotland and provides a delicate needled look. The style is often stitched on cotton muslin or lawn with a fine cotton thread. The style is popular for use on flounces, dresses and bonnets. Celebrate international embroidery traditions from the United Kingdom by crafting this sweet baby bonnet. Using cotton batiste and the embroidery design of your choice, this innocent embroidery design is perfect for honoring the newest addition to the family.



International Embroidery Design #2: Moroccan Memories

In the United States, our clothing choices are traditionally decided by personal choice and fashion. However, garments in other countries are more a matter of history and culture than fashion. Littered with symbolism, history and comfort, international embroidery plays a large role in designing traditional garments in many countries. In Morocco, for example, embroidery is used on the jellaba. A loosely fitted robe, the jellaba is worn by both men and women to deal with the heat of the area and modest customs. Use this international embroidery design to create your own jellaba - perfect for comfort and style!



International Embroidery Design #3:

Think of traditional Mexican clothing and visions of whirling rainbows of color, pheasant blouses and floral embroidery designs come to mind. Mexican climate lends itself to much of the international embroidery designs the region is known for.  Due to the areas' mixed climate, Mexican culture is known for folk, lightweight designs and patterns. Lightweight fabrics like cotton can emulate traditional international embroidery design from Mexico. Combined with a simple floral embroidery design, you're peasant blouse will remind you of Mexico every time you wear it.
