Chrysler To Go Activity Kit #2: Embroidered Monogram
Across the globe, embroidery has been a simple way to decorate or embellish fabric with thread. Even though our example from China is 200 years old, we bet you can find embroidery on some of your clothing like where you see logos on polo shirts or hats.
In this activity, you’ll learn three different stitches—ways to bring the needle up and down through the fabric—to create different shapes and textures. You’ll then use those stitches to create an embroidered letter on a piece of burlap.
Take a closer look at an embroidered Chinese silk robe.
