I've been thinking about it. Like I really need something else to do and more supplies! Do you have a favorite site for basic instructions?

A friend's MIL embroidered gold rings on all the wedding invitations when her son and my friend got married. It looked beautiful.

Some paper embroidery patterns can be adapted to use for embroidering on CDs. (Obviously, you need to drill the holes, but the principle is the same).

Hi Cathy and other embroiderers -

I have tried embroidery on greeting cards a few times. The effect is stunning and certainly different from most other cards I make. But golly, did my fingers get sore poking all those holes!

What do you use to make the holes? (I was using a large needle.)

I did an angel in flight to fit into the oval space under glass of a wooden tray for my mother; of course, I have it now. Still love it. chery2

YES, I HAVE. I USED CARDSTOCK PAPER AND A STRONG NEEDLE.
I ALSO PUT STABALIZER ON THE BACK SIDE, THEN COVERED WITH
ANOTHER PIECE OF MATCHING PAPER, TRIMED WITH SOMETHING PRETTY....EDGING...
