For when all you need is underwear...
Kids not sure where their knickers are kept? Other half hopeless at putting away the washing? Maybe you're just like me and have a really strange sense of humor. Either way, label up your drawers of drawers with Dandelyne's mini embroidery kit.

This tutorial will take you through how to use your kit to embroider a design and attach the fabric to the mini frames - feel free to treat it as a general tutorial for the kit as well as the specific project detailed if you're not wanting to label up your y-fronts.

Kits available from Dandelyne's Etsy store or http://dandelyne.com/
