Embroidery has been around for thousands of years. Garments found in China have been dated back to the time of the Warring states period (5th-3rd Century BC). Embroidery was at first used to tailor, patch, mend and reinforce clothing, but then it started to be used to add decoration and flourishes to garments, and that is how the art of embroidery was born.

It really is mind blowing to know she only used a needle and thread to create these.
