Overview

Explore hand embroidery for beginners as a fun, relaxing way to bring your inspirations to life! Join author Jessica Marquez, and learn essential techniques that ensure your stitches are consistent every time you pick up a project. Refresh your basic skills with smooth satin stitches that won't pucker and French Knots that always stay put, and use whipped and threaded stitches for an impressive look with easy execution. Master tricky knotted, looped and fill stitches like the fishbone, cretan and bouillon for polished designs, and learn three easy methods to transfer any design to fabric–including two that don't even require an iron! Jessica will also show you how to embellish a T-shirt with dazzling stitched detail as you learn stabilizing strategies for stretchy knits, and create your own patterns from cherished photos and drawings.
