How Bev Creatives came about
She embroidered her first piece somewhere in July this year. Surprisingly, it started off as a joke.
I saw a cute shirt with a minimal image on a friend and I thought to myself, “what if I create these?”.
I am not going to lie and say embroidery has always been my passion because it has not. It came to me spontaneously, never in my twenty years of living did I imagine myself hand embroidering until that day.
I went to Pinterest and saw that I could hand embroider considering that it’s much more unique than hand-painting which I considered first. I rushed out and bought yarn and made my first piece.
Yes, I also cringe at the fact that I first embroidered with yarn, but that’s the beauty of processes; we learn and grow.
There is so much to learn with hand embroidery. First of all, there are so many patterns to learn and it requires a lot of patience. That is one thing it taught me, to be patient and consistent. The fact that I am a student, It is very hard to do school work and finish shirts on time, but I always try to deliver on time. And with regards to customer service, I have not received any complaints yet, so it is safe to say I am doing great.
