Welcome to part two of my embroidery series, today I will discuss starting and finishing a project for beginners.
– Pick a pattern – For your first project it is best to pick a pattern that has limited small detail and you can finish in a timely manner like the one pictured below.
– Cut your pattern out and iron on – Give yourself enough of an edge to be able to hold it down while ironing while not infringing on the other patterns in the pack. Also making sure only the pattern you want is there, the picture below you can see the pattern number still there which I would first cut away before ironing on.
– Start Stitching!
Really that is all that you need to do to prep once you have all your essentials I mentioned in post one!
As far as stitches go there are many out there and I recommend to pick one and practice it till it becomes second nature before trying a new one.
After the video I will link to two great tutorial for basic stitches.
