First embroidery projects

My grandmother taught me to embroider years ago when I was 5 or 6 yrs old.  We traced coloring book images onto pillow cases and I worked from that.  After all these years – I still have one of the first one’s I ever did.  As you can see it was well-loved and used often!

But history buff Andy Wilkinson in London , England has taken ‘my first embroidery project’ to a whole new level!!  How I conquered sewing by making a Bayeux Tapestry



  1. Thanks for sharing a very interesting article. Mr. Wilkinson did a fantastic job, especially for one who had not sewed or embroidered previously.
