DIY Embroidery in Hong Kong

In case you've been blind for most of 2016, embroidery is everywhere and in so many forms. From designers, to street style to Zara, it doesn't look like it's going away. I was on a mission to re-create this look. The first place I headed was Sham Shui Po (check out Sassy HK's guide to this area) and came across Nan Fong Embroidery. This place is embroidery heaven!

This tiny little store has thousands and thousands of embroidery patches, taking up floor to ceiling. Anything you can think of, this place has it: Army patches, letters, flowers, animals, dragons, music patches, words, names... if you can think of it, they have it!

Playing around with options. Give yourself a good hour or two to even look around. Prices start from HKD $5 to $200+ on some of the larger more intricate patterns.

I added my little finds to my maternity jeans - figured the trend should last through the next trimester!
