How toEmbroider A Vine
8 steps
Hello!
What you’ll need
1
Embroidery Hoop
Needle
Scissors
Embroidery Thread
Fabric (any kind, I like linen!)
Chalk Pencil (optional but recommended)
Place your fabric in the embroidery hoop: don’t forget to make it nice and taut!
1
Cut a length of your thread with the scissors and then thread your needle (securing it with a knot).
2
If using a pencil, draw a curved line to follow.
3
Stitch a curved line, following the marking you created. (This is backstitch)
4
Next, weave your working thread under each stitch you’ve created. This is “whipping” the backstitch.
5
To make the leaves, you’ll create five straight stitches that meet at a point.
6
Repeat as desired!
7
Secure your stitches with a knot at the end, and snip any excess thread!
