Can you thread a needle and tie a knot? These easy embroidery stitches will help you personalize any cloth.
Use colors you like, sew designs, and put them on any item. I’ve put names on clothing, initials on ornaments, and designs on aprons.
And Walmart has a good selection of DMC™ embroidery floss for 33¢ each.
The three most important things for success are:
1. When stitching, only put the tip of your needle into the fabric. Then decide if that’s where you want it – before you put the needle through.
2. If you don’t like a stitch, then take it OUT and rethread your needle.
3. Every stitch has to be the same size.
I absolutely LOVE to hand sew and embroider.
And, if you give it a try, I think you will like embroidery. You could take on an embroidery kit after this. And who knows, you may end up an expert seamstress.
You can do this!
Follow the step-by-step guidance for Back, Split, and Satin stitches. Instructions and labelled photos are shown for each stitch.
