Embroidery, an ancient art of threadwork, is something that can be done to decorate fabrics such as clothes, towels, bed sheets and even slippers. A blank item can be embroidered with something as simple as a monogram or it can be embroidered with something more complex, such as a floral design. Choosing to embroider blank items by hand or machine depends on the item and the amount of embroidery that needs to be done.
