Picking out embroidery floss is my favorite! For this project I used gold and different shades of green. There are six threads in embroidery floss; to make it go further use half of the floss.Â + A hoop, wooden hoops are my favourite.
+Fabric, I like to use cross stitch fabric sometimes, and if you are a beginner I recommend it!
+I use a pencil to draw out what I want to stitch, but you can buy fabric pens at your local craft store.
+ Also in photo A you can see that my needle is coming from the back side of the hoop. The needle has also skipped a small space.Â + In photoÂ B you can see that my needle is going through the front side of my hoop and back at the tip of my last stitch. That’s why this stitch is called the Back Stitch.
After you’ve finished cut the extra fabric from your hoop and hang in your home, or wrap it up and give it to a friend!
Happy nesting! âAmber
