Embroidery is not my forté.
I thought I would jazz my purse up today. I've got this funky mulitcoloured metallic thread and a plain black purse. I tried to embroider a turtle onto one of the pocket flaps. As you can see, I'm not very good at it. I may try again one day, but I will use a scrap of fabric and if it turns out, then I will attach it to my purse (or wherever I want it). Until then, we shall see just how long this one lasts. It actually looks pretty good from a distance. That is why I am not providing a close up shot!
