When your hobby is about needlework you’ll be working with the same tools and supplies whether you are making a new piece of clothing or just adding some decorative stitches on it, some people might think these two types of needlework are the same, but they are not, so let’s take a look to what is the difference between the two of them.
Sewing VS Embroidery
Sewing and Embroidery are two different types of needlework, while you use the same supplies (needles and threads) to make them, each one is different, one is for making a new piece of garment or item, while the second is about polishing what you made by adding some decorative stitches.
Sewing A New Garment
Sewing is for making a new garment or any other item by joining the pieces together, whether is a new piece of clothing, and accessory, or some decor item. You’ll be cutting the different pieces of fabric, to later join them by hand or with your sewing machine to construct the new item. The stitching will hold the different pieces together to create a new piece.
Sewing can also be used to patch or to mend a piece of clothing or a home decor item that has been used for some time and it starts to fray off, the stitching can be done by hand or with your sewing machine to patch a hole or to join an open seam again.

Any garment can be turned into a pretty piece of clothing by adding some easy to make or elaborate embroidery stitches.
Embroidery is a needlework technique that can be done on a piece of clothing, on any accessory or on any home decor item made of fabric.
