Pretty and simple DIY project with step-by-step guide.
Learn how to embroider a letter onto any piece of clothes you have at home with our little tutorial and personalize it for your little one!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
- Embroidery needle
- Chalk/Water-soluble marker
- Embroidery hoop (for the garment)
Satin stitch is a sequence of parallel stitches sewn close together. It is basically, a back and forth flat stitch.
Draw your letter on the fabric using something that will not show on your finished design. We used tailor chalk and a cutout letter template.
Thread the needle and tie a knot in the end while keeping about 3 inches loose on the other side of the knot. Bring the needle up through the fabric from one side of your letter outline and then go back down from the other side.
When you get to the curve of the letter, slightly change the angle of the stitches so that they flow smoothly along with the curves. To finish it off, flip the fabric to the other side and tie a knot close to the fabric. Then, cut off the excess thread.
For knitwear, begin by drawing the outline of the letter just like you would on a fabric. Use a washable marker or chalk. After you thread the needle, start the embroidery by bringing the needle from the back of the cardigan. The knot will help secure the thread in place.
Now go back down halfway on the other side while bringing the needle back up from the point where you first started. Use your fingers to create the right tension and base on the cardigan.
Adjust the direction of the stitches and slowly fan them out while keeping the stitches close together. When you are done, tie a knot close to the garment. Then, cut off the excess thread.
