We’re totally obsessing over embroidered photographs; they’ve plunged themselves into the DIY mix and we love their fresh look. Now, as well as adding a filter to our snaps (love a good Instagram sesh), we can pimp our photography with playful embroidery. Everything from the French knot, back stitch and satin stitch can be used to enhance your photographs. For best results use old or black and white photos and colourful floss when creating your very on embroidered photo art. Geometric shapes work best and a few floss rays coming out of your subject’s eyes wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
