These days there are so many items that can be embroidered, such as most items of clothing and pretty much anything that is made of cloth or leather. You may not have thought about having anything custom embroidered before but it can really help to make a family event that bit more special. It also means that you will have a special keepsake from the event to remember the day by.
Some family events for which embroidery would be nice.
A custom embroidered image on a sweater can make a great birthday gift. Maybe an image of the birthday boy or girl themselves embroidered on a polo shirt would make a fantastic gift. What about their favorite sports team? An embroidered family image on a new sweater will blow them away.
Custom embroidery is especially nice if the birthday is a significant one, like the 21st or 40th. Having a humorous picture or statement on a piece of clothing could really highlight the event.
A family reunion could be a great reason to get some embroidering done for the first time. Maybe you have a family crest that you would like to have embroidered onto a shirt or cap for everyone to wear. Or you could have an animal, object or some words that represent the family.
If you do have a family logo then it may be a nice idea to have napkins or a tablecloth embroidered with your crest on to make a family dinner that bit more special. You could also think about having peoples nicknames embroidered onto a garment to help make the event more fun.
Weddings, engagements and christenings
Embroidery is also the perfect way to enhance a wedding, christening, engagement or a bar mitzvah. If someone in the family is due to get married then you could have t-shirts, caps, or shirts embroidered for a the event.
You could have a small design embroidered onto a christening blanket or gown, such as the date of the christening, the name of the baby and the location of the event to make a special memento. This type of idea will also work nicely for a bar mitzvah or a young lady’s sweet sixteen party. The idea of embroidering napkins and table settings for a wedding with the date and the bride and grooms names would also be wonderful.
Aside from the ideas above, there are also some other occasions where embroidery could be appropriate. These include having a cap or gown embroidered for use for a graduation. You could include the date and maybe the degree or the college that they have graduated from.
Or maybe you are going on a special family sports day out and could have team names embroidered onto a t-shirt. In fact the list is practically endless, so why not give embroidering a try and see how it can enhance a number of occasions.
