Millions of people around the world are fans of this style of entertainment.

Some of the most popular animes come from Studio Ghibli and Kyoto Animation. Studio Ghibli is world-renowned for their animated films, with 6 of these actually being apart of the 15 highest earning films in Japan!

The film Spirited Away, holding the title of #1. This is for good reason, it’s pure art! From storyline to the animation itself(especially the animation itself), you’ll be blown away. This movie can will make it into your top 5 favorites for sure!

Why You Should Create Anime Embroidery

Patterns for Anime Embroidery

First of all, it’s loads of fun. Embroidery itself is actually very beneficial for you to do; It alleviates stress, lowers anxiety, and even lowers your blood pressure! Theres actually many more benefits as well but we’ll save those for another day.

Creating anime embroidery is a wonderful way for you to combine two things you may be passionate about! It’s also a great idea because anime converts so well into thread because of its animation style! If you were to try and embroider a real life movie or tv show character, it will turn out to be much more difficult than creating an anime one. The latter is beginner friendly, and we love that.

Not to mention, you get to make your own merch!

Have a specific scene or character that you like? You can put it on a hat, a sweatshirt, heck you can put basically anything that has fabric! Chances are you’ll probably save money doing it too. Your end product will be something that both makes you happy and brings you pride!

Just imagine that moment when you’re wearing one of your creations out in public and someone says, “Thats awesome! Where did you get it?” and you get to reply, “I made it!” How cool will that be.

Getting started can be hard. After all there is so many to choose from you may not know where to start!
