Embroidery designs and files with Design Bundles

*Collaborative post.

I have always been interested in designing and creating things from scratch. Many years ago, I played around with the idea of becoming a fashion designer. That idea disappeared shortly after naturally. I realised I was not a natural when it came to sewing and designing pieces/accessories. The interest wasn’t really there either. I still remember when a good friend tried to get me into crotchet. She created many lovely little cardigans and blankets for the kiddies when they were babies, but I just wasn’t interested in those sorts of things at all. Fast forward a few years now, we are still in lockdown and there is a lot more time to do many things at home, and I know many people are playing around with baking, cooking, sewing, and a lot more at home. If you are interested in embroidery designs, you will find this post very useful.

Embroidery Designs

Embroidery designs have been around for a very long time and they are still quite popular. The easiest way to describe embroidery is as an art of decorating using materials like fabrics, pearls, beads, sequins, and quills, alongside a needle to apply thread. Embroidery designs are always very eye-catching and artistic. I find them very creative which is why they always catch my attention. You can easily spot embroidery designs on caps, hats, dresses, skirts, tops, blankets, coats, dress shirts, and many more. The designs always stand out so beautifully, which is why I love going for pieces and accessories with some embroidered pattern on them.

Embroidery file formats are the ways in which embroidery designs are saved in a software format or a machine format. Usually. you will need to have an embroidery machine and the right software to transfer files to your machine so you can use the designs. Before you purchase an embroidery design, you will need to find out which format will be compatible with your machine. When it comes to embroidery files, this is where Design Bundles comes in to save the day.

The mornings tend to be cold this time of the year. So a good light jacket is needed for the season. I need a couple of light jackets to get me through the school run especially in the morning. You should invest in some if you are in need of light jackets this autumn. This Regatta Women’s Birchdale Jacket is a great option. It comes with a hood which is so handy, and there are many colours available. It is waterproof and breathable. Also, it has a durable water repellent finish which is amazing.

I love having hoodies at the ready for the autumn/winter season. They come in handy when it is dry and not cold enough for a jacket. I really like this Levi’s Women’s Batwing Hoodie Plain Regular Fit Long Sleeve Hoodie. It is super stretchy and looks like great quality. I am yet to have a Levi’s hoody so I can see myself grabbing this off the Amazon Fashion website very soon.

You can easily find me in leggings even in the winter months. I find them very comfortable and easy to style. When I can’t think of what to wear, my leggings and a top come to the rescue. I wear them a lot on school mornings and I have recently bought some more to add to my collection. This FUTURO FASHION Women’s Full Length Cotton Leggings is a great option. They come in different colours, so there are shades for everyone.

School runs are never good in uncomfortable shoes. Especially when you are all running late and have to work really fast. This Skechers Women’s Go Walk Joy Slip On Trainers is a great footwear for the school run. I have a similar pair and I really like it. It has been with me for many years and still does the job nicely. Sketchers is a great footwear brand and I recommend it to anyone after quality trainers this season.

Style Icon – Michelle Dede

Michelle Dede – the Nigerian freelance television presenter and actress has always been my Style Icon. I have admired her style for as long as I have known her; I remember spotting her presenting Big Brother Nigeria many moons ago, and thinking she was (and still is) the definition of Stylish.

 

 

Michelle Dede always looks effortlessly chic. She makes dressing up look fun and easy, like it should be, and that is what I love most about her style. This Style Icon inspires my style goals, and I am not surprised she has such an impeccable style. As a graduate of fashion design and fashion merchandising, I can see where her love for fashion and style comes from.

 

 

In an interview with In Her Closet, Dede describes her style as Eclectic, and says her love for fashion became official while studying in London.

 

My sense of style is eclectic. I dress based on my mood each day, taking inspiration from broad and diverse sources. I’ve always been interested in fashion, as a kid and in my teens in high-school, I experimented mixing and matching my clothes, to the amusement of my parents and older siblings.

I studied fashion design & fashion merchandising in university, so I was surrounded by fashion as well as gravitated towards all things fashion related. London is the home of unique, edgy, unconventional fashion which I love.

 

I agree, I think London is one of the greatest fashion cities in the world!

 

She has shared some style tips.

Wear shoes you like, not what’s fashionable or what your friends think you should wear.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, style is individual, so if you want to wear red shoes with a canary yellow outfit, do it!

 

I agree with her tips, style is individual.
