Amateur Embroidery

Hey! It’s Monday Funday!

Have you ever tried embroidery? It’s really fun, not as easy as it looks but still fun. This isn’t my first run in with embroidery, we have crossed paths before.

My embroidered t-shirt

You will need –

  • Embroidery needle
  • Embroidery thread
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Plain tshirt
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

You can draw out your design on the tshirt or item you have chosen. Now, I did draw my design on, but, I went rogue. It was like the spirit of the embroidery overtook me and I had to follow it!

The start of my embroidered tshirt

I didn’t use any of the fancy pants stitches, I literally just started in the centre and worked my way out. Below you can see the progression of the flowers. There really isn’t any reason to give a full detailed tutorial, there isn’t much to say, its more of a visual thing.

It’s a simple little flower design, I didn’t want to be jazzy and show off (mainly because this is the extent of my mad embroidery skills!).

It might be a nice hobby to take up during lockdown (does anyone else say that in a dramatic voice? Just me?), simple and supposedly calming, except for when you get a stupid knot in the stupid thread and you cant get it through the stupid hole! Just saying…..

Anyway, do you embroider? Show me what you made?

Take care,

xx
