Embroidery is one of the oldest and most inexpensive hobbies to get into. The craft evolved from the need to tailor, patch, mend, or reinforce cloth. From there, people learned that once you get into it, it can be a pretty fun thing to do as you don’t need much (just the right thread, an embroidery hoop, needle, and scissors) and the designs you can create are limitless.
Pretty soon, almost everyone – from the royals to the peasants – was getting into embroidery. In fact, you can tell from which culture or country a specific design originated.
For example: small, floral patterns are typical of Crimean Tatar traditional embroidery. Meanwhile, elaborate and sophisticated stitching, especially those done with gold thread, pearls, or sequins, can be of Tunisian origin since they are known for their elegant and rich needlework.
Love the look of colorful stitching? Then you may find these embroidery fonts too delightful for their own good.
