Embroidered Converse Tutorial

Love wearing Converse, don't you?
Recently, I decided to add a little bit of embroidery to my black pair. Here's how ...

jenny dohFor the right shoe, I took one of the stitched white lines of the shoe as my guide to add simple straight stitches, first with red perle cotton and then white perle cotton to make an arrow. No pattern, no transfer lines ... I just went fo rit. And then I added some scallop-shapes with back stitches, and then some random straight stitches and French knots.

For the left shoe, I made a heart, using one of the stitched lines of the shoe as my guide. Again, no pattern, no transfer lines. More like doodling with needle and thread. I finished with some small cross stitches and straight stitches.

With some white socks and skinny jeans, I'm ready to go. Easy peasy.

Happy embroidery! :)
