i did a few embroidery projects when i was like 8 so it’s been a while to say the least.
using spare embroidery hoops and a scrap piece of beige muslin, i attempted my first embroidery project. i pretty much want to embroider everything now!
check out how to make one for yourself, from any template.
print or draw an image. if you draw one, make sure your lines are dark enough to see through your fabric.
place your fabric over the template and trace with a pencil. the pencil will snag and the fabric will move, just mark it likely, enough to see it without the template behind.
place the inside piece of the hoop under the traced fabric.
place the outer ring over the fabric and bottom ring, tighten the screw and make sure all the fabric is taut.
at this point, if you do not know how to back stitch…look up a tutorial video on youtube. it’s super easy.
with these templates that have simple lines, a back stitch is all you need.
see how cute!?!?!
i already have 3 more sketches ready to go…i just need more fabric. then i will have a little collection of embroidered vintage stuff. yay!
