PROJECT 1 - Embroidering on clothing

In this Project I have created 2 modern patterns for you along with full demo videos explaining all you need to know so you can begin to  embroider onto you clothes (or accessories) right now!

The pattern - Flowers & Moon

You have so many fun options for the patterns I have provided.

You could use the big BOLD motif to adorn your clothing, bag , cushion.... or start simple with the smaller motif for a lapel or pocket decor.

You may simply prefer to stick to the hoop and make some art for your wall...the small designs fit a 4" or 5" hoop and the large motif  fits an 8" hoop.

You can enlarge the pattern to suit the surface you are stitching by using your own printer settings. ( I personally wouldn't go smaller as the details become harder to stitch).

You may wish to use lots of colours from your stash or go monotone.

You might also like to mix up how much of the pattern you fill and how much you outline.

The videos provide ALL the information you need to get you started...and if not then send a message here.
