Everywhere we look, hoops are going green — literally! The #PlantLady trend has made it into the embroidery world, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. (Especially those of us who aren’t the best at remembering to water the real deal.)
If you've been loving all thing's embroidery this year, now's the time to show off those stitches for the holidays! These ornaments from Jessica Long of Namaste Embroidery (and our Modern Hand Embroidery class) use beginner-friendly stitches to create adorable sparkly samplers that will look great on your Christmas tree.
Needle (or thread) painting is a truly artful way to embroider. Here, Jessica shows you how to use this technique to create furlike stitching for your second project, a bear cub design. She also shares tips for making expressive animal features including eyes, ears, a snout and couched mouth.
The holidays are the ultimate excuse to dress your family in matching pajamas. These monogrammed PJs keep your whole fam cozy in style, and they're super easy to embroider — hello, perfect holiday gift!
