TUTORIAL | 7 Basic Embroidery Stitches

I’ve had quite a few request to make this video over the last few months, so I thought I’d finally get my act together and do it for you!

The stitches I cover include:

Back Stitch
Split Stitch
Stem Stitch
Chain Stitch
Blanket Stitch
Satin Stitch
French Knot

It’s quite a quick and very visually jammed-packed kinda video…

Let me know if you could keep up!! 😀

In this tutorial I use:

DMC thread/floss,
A no.7 embroidery needle
White 100% cotton homespun fabric
A 125mm/5″ round wooden embroidery hoop

And these are the books I recommend for any beginners out there:

‘The Stitch Bible’ by Kate Haxell

‘Embroidery’ by Penny Black, India Flint and Vicki Porter

‘Doodle Stitching’ by Aimee Ray

***

There are lots of other things beginning, growing and expanding in my sewing room atm!

This being one of them…

HSTs in progress!
HSTs in progress!

Think a ton of 2″ (ish) HSTs, lots of scrappy fabrics and a colour way of pretty blues & greens!!

Such fun!

Cheerio Friends

Happy Sewing!

PS. Have you noticed something different??

My lovely blog has had a little make over!

Modern, clean and simple yet still keeping a lot of the features from the previous themes I’ve had.

This particular theme is called ‘Sorbet’ (ohh, lovely!).
