Beginning Embroidery Stitches

As usual, my Saturday post takes inspiration from what I’ve been doing this weekend.  Today was all about learning how to embroider.  Here is a wonderful blog post that I found with the beginning embroidery stitches and easy instructions to follow!

Clockwise: Running Stitch, Whipped Running Stitch, Back Stitch, Couching, Stem Stitch, Outline Stitch

If you’re like I am, you know the back stitch and the running stitch from your sewing.  The others were pretty simple to learn and I have been doing some fun patterns today already!  Think of what you can customize with just some simple stitching: attendant’s gifts, handkerchiefs for your mother and grandmother, or even your bouquet wrap!

Happy Saturday!
