We all need hobbies that we can enjoy in our spare time, and you might be a little surprised to hear that embroidery is one of my all-time favourites. Though it’s not something that you might typically associate with a younger crowd, I’ve found that this beautiful art form has so many benefits, and it’s undergone a very modern makeover.
Looking for great way to relax and unwind after a long day at the office? I firmly believe that you should consider embroidery. Here’s how it’s changed over the past few years, and why it’s definitely worth your consideration…
Millennials are realising the many benefits of crafting
This modern world is fast paced, and all too often, we become entirely consumed by technology. It keeps us connected and can be so valuable, but it can also have a real negative impact on your mental health and overall wellbeing.
Embroidery gives you a chance to unplug, to put down your phone, and to be more present in the here and now. A crafting session always makes me feel calmer and more grounded, and many millennials feel the same.
You can find and download digital designs
Just a few short years ago, if you were interested in finding an embroidery pattern, you’d have to make a special trip to a high quality arts and crafts supplier. If you don’t have the time to do that, then you’re certainly not alone!
Interestingly though, you can now choose from a wide range of Embroidery Digital Designs online from reputable providers like Design Bundles. They’re modern, they’re stylish, there are thousands to choose from, and you can download them instantly. It’s never been easier to start embroidery, so you have no excuse to not give it a go!
Crafting can allow you to ditch fast fashion
We’re all becoming more and more aware of the impact that our consumer choices are having on the environment. We recognise that buying an item to wear just once and throw away is hugely irresponsible, and many of us are actively looking for ways to cut down out footprint.
Crafting and embroidery can be a fun and practical way to make a difference. Maybe you’ve got a denim jacket that’s been hanging in the back of your wardrobe for ages, and it no longer inspires you. Why not make it your mission this weekend to give it a makeover? You could choose a digital embroidery design to sew onto the back, creating a statement piece that really showcases your personality!
Using digital designs can be a little overwhelming if you’re new to this particular kind of crafting, but the reality is that once you get going, you’ll be amazed at just how simple and straightforward it can be.
Considering the fact that you can breathe life into your wardrobe, and get stuck into a project that could be hugely rewarding, what have you got to lose? If you decide to give it a try, do come back and let me know what you create!
