If you are following along with my new hand embroidery video series then you will be excited to see Video #2! In this video we are still covering some of the basics like fabric, how to select and transfer and embroidery design, loading it onto the hoop and getting ready for your stitches. If you’re impatient (like me!) then you will probably appreciate knowing that I will NOT make you wait two more weeks to learn how to do a basic running stitch. Instead, I’ve decided to release one embroidery video every week for the duration of the series. {BONUS: I plan to upload another one later this week! Stay tuned! SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on any future videos! }

Some notes on this video:

• The fabric I use is Osnaburg (100% cotton) fabric.

• The book I like to use for small beginner designs is called Indygo Junction’s Stitched Style.

• The pens I feature are Sulky’s Iron-On Transfer Pens

• The wooden embroidery hoops can be found at any crafting store or online HERE. 

• The mini iron I use is this one. 

• The mini ironing board I use is made by me. HERE is the video tutorial so you can make one too.

And now I’ll leave you with Video #2 of my new Hand embroidery Video Series! Enjoy!

{P.S.- You can always click HERE to access all the videos in this series. As I add new ones they will be archived HERE. }
