Family Birthdays Embroidery Hoop (Tutorial)
I really liked this birthday dates Printable frame idea. Which inspired me to create this embroidery hoop.
The idea to embroidery my Family’s Birthdays on a hoop.
That was it, a custom special handmade project!
I simply made an image on Picmonkey with the birth dates and printed it out.
Then with the help of a carbon paper, I traced it onto my fabric.
Fit it into the embroidery hoop. And started embroidery the Stem Stitch.
Tip: I place a piece of paper towel on the back to support my stitch and get neat results.
What I love about this stitch is, it gives a very neat outline and is very easy to do.
Stem Stitch Tutorial:
- Bring the thread out at a and hold it down with your thumb. Insert the thread at b and bring it out at c, midway between a and b.
- Pull the thread through to see the first stitch. Hold the working thread down with your thumb and insert the needle at d and bring it out at e, midway between d and b.
- Continue in this way, making each stitch exactly the same length.
I chose to go with turquoise for the date and brown for the month of our birth dates.
Here’s what you get.
I love how custom and handmade this embroidery hoop looks!
