I have another embroidery phrase to share! Supplies:
- 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.
I double up my Back Stitch when I want to make my lines thicker. Continue to Back Stitch “aspire” until you reach the end.
Remember to only double stitch the main portion of each letter and single stitch the connectors.
Use a French Knot to dot the “I” Use the single and double Back Stitch method for the last two words as well.
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.
I love how classic this project looks!
There’s nothing wrong with simplicity!
