This Skillshare class is all about improving your hand embroidery skills and increasing your collection of hand embroidery stitches that you will be able to use not only for the class project but also in future projects.
This class is for you if you consider yourself a hand embroidery beginner but have done some hand embroidery before and are comfortable to thread up your needle, secure your thread, and know how to stitch a simple backstitch.
If you are a complete hand embroidery beginner or need to brush up on your embroidery skills and techniques, I highly suggest you check out my previous class: “Hand Embroidery 101: Foundational Stitches and Techniques“. In the foundation class, I cover everything you need to know to get started in hand embroidery from threading up to transferring your designs. And in true Skillshare fashion, you can practice your newly learned skills in the accompanying class project: spring blossoms on a branch.
In this follow on class, you’ll learn and practice 4 new simple but versatile hand embroidery stitches:
- The basic lazy daisy stitch
- The filled lazy daisy stitch
- The straight stitch
During the practice part of the class, you will not only learn individual stitch techniques, but I will also share when best to use the stitches and how you can adapt each stitch to make it fit for different scenarios. This knowledge will help you to decide what stitches to use in future projects.
Throughout the class, I have added helpful tips, tricks, and techniques that will help you to improve and perfect your stitching skills. You can pause and rewind the lessons whenever you need to and take the class as many times as you like.
While I will provide you with suggestions on which tools and materials to use, you are very welcome to use whatever you have at home already. You also might want to use fabrics or thread colours that you prefer.
The class comes complete with a downloadable materials list, pattern, stitch plan, and suggestions for transfer methods depending on the fabric chosen.
By the end of this class, you will have stitched a beautiful spray of lavender and will have gained new skills and confidence that you can use and apply in any future embroidery projects.
