DIY OESD Gift Guide

Hi there, Laura here from Trash to Couture! When it comes to making gifts for my loved ones I like to create original items tailored to each person. This is why I love embroidery. There are so many options to customize each gift with design, wording, and what you choose to embroider on. OESD has so much to offer just browsing through the site you will find a gift for everyone in your life. We put together 3 DIY gift ideas that can easily be customized for your gift giving this year.

Get the details below :


DIY Freestanding Jewelry:

I love the look of freestanding lace. These cuffs and choker sets make beautiful gifts and also lovely accessories for your holiday looks. Try these with metallic threads as well.

For more Freestanding Lace check out my post about the chokers and headbands.

DIY Embroidered Tea Towel:

Who doesn’t love coffee!? This Coffee Time collection is one of my favorites from OESD. I could embroider this on just about everything I own. This tea towel is a great gift to add with a cup and coffee for that coffee lover in your life (just about everyone… right?).

  • Mark the location of where you want the design. I chose the bottom of the towel.
  • Stabilizer the towel with a water soluble stabilizer like Aquamesh WashAway.
  • Hoop the towel and stabilizer.
  • Choose a fun design like this Coffee Time Collection.
  • Embroider with various Isacord threads.

DIY Hoop Art:

I love embroidered hoop art, it's such a fun and cute way to add some artwork to your walls. It's also easy to customize which makes it a great gift idea like these unicorn designs from the Unicorns embroidery collection. Perfect for hanging right in my studio.
