It’s time to celebrate! Every month in 2013 I’m learning a new craft, and now I’m halfway through.
When I learned embroidery in February I got close to giving up. The fine embroidery threads I had bought didn’t appreciate my fumbling. I got sore fingers and tangled threads for my trouble.
Then I tried embroidering with yarn. I loved it! If you’re nervous to tackle embroidery, try yarn. It exaggerates the stitches, so it’s perfect for learning how they work. It helps that it builds up quick and looks good, too!
- DK or thinner yarn
- Needle with large enough eyelet for yarn
(Yarn needles might not be sharp enough)
- Fabric of choice (I’m using denim)
- Embroidery hoop
The stitches you’ll learn:
- Running stitch
- Blanket stitch
- Lazy daisy stitch
- Chain stitch
Let’s get started!
