I’ve been into crafting little phrases/quotes recently, so I have a easy, short embroidery phrase to share with you today.
- Embroidery hoop
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
- 3341 – peach
- 747 – light blue (optional) I promise the blue thread actually matches the fabric. It looks completely off in this picture though.
First, find a font (or two) that you like and type out the phrase.
Then, trace the phrase onto your fabric.
Were going to Back Stitch the “Hello.” Instead of just one “row” of the Back Stitch, we’re going to do two.
Because I was going to Satin Stitch the “Darling,” I wanted the “Hello” to be thick too.
We’re going to use the thinner thread to outline the “Darling.” Outlining make the Satin Stitch much easier!
After testing, I went ahead and outlined the rest of the word.
I tried my best to outline inside of the pencil lines, because I didn’t want to make “Darling” extra thick when it came time to do the Satin Stitch.
I love the color combination, and I had a good time practicing my Satin Stitch!
