Handwork Ideas & Patterns
See this video on how to transfer embroidery patterns? And this one about embroidering on stretchy fabrics? And this post about removing stabilizer? I now use this instead of all the products I showed you in those old videos. It works on light fabrics, dark fabrics, napped fabrics, and stretchy fabrics. It's MAGIC!
I ❤ embroidery . . . How to Work the Scroll Stitch- © Cheryl C. Fall, Licensed to About.com. Learn to work the Scroll Stitch. This beautiful surface embroidery stitch is worked by looping the thread under the needle as you stitch, creating a graceful scroll-like effect. The stitch can be used along straight lines and curves, along bands or to outline shapes. It can also mimic rippling water or waves when used in beach or water-themed embroidery projects.
