Embroidery class

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!
