The first gift I made was my daughters handprints for my Mom & Dad. Using a pencil I traced each of their hands on to the fabric.
You make a small stitch and then bring your needle up through the center of the previous stitch as you make your next one. You’ll need to work with at least 4 strands so that your able to split them while you stitch. Looks impressive, but is super simple! It almost looks like a braid.
Once complete, I then framed it. I loved it so much I made one for myself as well!
After I found out how simple embroidery can be I decided to make my sister a tote. She & her husband live downtown Chicago and are avid bike riders. My sister even rides to and from work daily until it snows. I made a embroidered version of her bike.
