During a recent online search that had nothing to do with embroidered Chucks, I wandered through cyberspace, chasing links, bouncing between blogs and happened upon these inspirational photos. I immediately knew what I had to make for my girlfriend’s newly adopted daughter.
Tips for those that might embark on a shoe embroidery project: Use a chenille needle. It’s similar in length to a tapestry needle but has a very sharp point and a larger eye. I used DMC pearl cotton thread which has a nicer finish than regular embroidery floss. Finally, have a pair of needlenose pliers ready to save your fingertips!
