I’m teaching embroidery to some friends of mine. Here is one student’s project so far!
All my students started with a hoop, design of their choice, fabric they picked out, a needle, a pile of floss, and some scissors. I have several embroideries with a variety of stitches on display plus a stitch dictionary, so whenever they finish an area I help them pick a stitch out for the next area. This design is free, found at CraftStew.
This flower has a french knot center, lazy daisies and buttonhole stitches in concentric circles, and satin stitch petals. Isn’t it cute?
The little yellow flower has herringbone stitch petals.
The orange flower has a spiral split stitch center, berry stitches (double lazy daisy), and chain stitch petals.
My student is a really quick learner!
