Do you hear that? It’s the beach, mountains and, oh, everywhere in between calling. That’s right — it’s vacation season! And any great trip calls for some packable, practical, and oh-so-stylish embroidered accessories. Whether you prefer to stitch by hand or make it by machine, these plane-worthy projects are ready for takeoff.

Hand Embroidered Accessories

Summer Beach Tote

A classic summer beach bag gets a totally personalized look with a hit of hand embroidery. (Plus some extra embellishments, like funky tassles, for good measure!) Look for an unlined bag with an even weave, so you can access the inside to secure those stitches.


Beaded Bracelet

Customize a cuff from scratch with gorgeous beads that basically beg to be worn to a toes-in-the-sand dinner. The trick is to go for a mix of matte and shiny embellishments, so you get plenty of depth and dimension.


Machine Embroidered Accessories

Luggage Tags
