- Embroidery hoop
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric (mine is from Hobby Lobby)
- Printed phrase
- 823 – navy
- E3821 – metallic gold (optional)
We’re going to start by printing out a phrase.
I chose “Aspire To Be” because it’s short, cute, and something we say in my sorority (Kappa Kappa Gamma).
Because my quote is somewhat inspirational, I chose a script font that fit well with the phrase. Use your pencil to trace your phrase onto your fabric. We’re going to start by double Back Stitching the body of the “A” and single Back Stitching the little connector.
By “Double Back Stitching” I simply mean two rows of the Back Stitch right next to each other.
Remember to only double stitch the main portion of each letter and single stitch the connectors.
Once, “to be” is done, our project is complete!!
If you want to add a little more pizzazz, you can use the gold thread to Whip Stitch around the letters. Just like we did in our “Eat cake” project.
There’s nothing wrong with simplicity!
