What else will you need?

  • Some simple cotton fabric.  You can head to the quilting solids sections of the fabric store and grab something or just use that random pillowcase you have laying around.
  • An embroidery hoop.  I prefer wood but some like plastic.  This design will fit in a 5 inch hoop, but you can shrink it or enlarge it to fit your needs.
  • Six stranded embroidery floss.  I used the following DMC colors: 152, 368, 783, 793, 913, 991, 3328, 3687, 3776, 3815, 3836.
  • Scissors.  Cute little embroidery scissors plus big sharp fabric scissors if possible.
    I cover the following stitches in the video:
    • Back Stitch
    • Split Stitch
    • Padded Satin Stitch
    • Satin Stitch
    • Fishbone Stitch
    • (Fake) Stem Stitch
    • Woven Wheel (aka Spider Web Rose)
    • Detached Chain Stitch
    • French Knots
     Now what? Just press play and stitch along!
    (Pressing pause as needed of course)
    Happy Stitching and Namaste!
