✼ Embroidery hoop – I prefer a hoop with an inside diameter of about 5 inches, but it’s totally up to you
✼ Fabric – for this project I've used linen, but quilters’ cotton or muslin
work well too. Choose a fabric with a medium weave as it's less likely that the needle will leave noticeable holes in the fabric.
✼✼ Your fabric should be large enough to fit within the hoop with at least a half inch to an inch of excess fabric around the edges. For example, for my 5 inch hoop, I’d cut a piece of fabric that measures about 7 x 7 inches squared.
✼ Needle – use one that you feel comfortable with
✼ Disappearing ink marker or HB pencil
✼ Sticky tape and scissors
✼ Optional: Seed Beads and a beading needle
Let's get started!
✼✼ Please save the Stitch Key at the bottom of the page for referencing stitches.
✼ Now tape your fabric square over the template, making sure to position the fabric over the design so that it’s evenly centered on your fabric .
✼ Use your HB pencil or disappearing ink marker to trace the design onto the fabric.
