Sign up for Embroidery 101 here. You’ll learn how to get started, the tools and supplies you’ll need, the four most basic stitches, how to transfer your pattern and how to display your work.

If you already know the basics – sign up for Embroidery 201. It’s also free! You’ll learn how to stitch on specialty fabrics like felt and stretchy T-shirts. Plus you’ll learn lots and lots and LOTS more stitches – all my favorites!

I love using a little bit of embroidery to fancy up a simple garment – like this T-shirt skirt I made for my daughter.

I’ll tell you – I love this skirt. I’m going to be so sad when Jo outgrows it!

I really need to make one for myself. . .

But you want to know about the embroidery. That’s what the video is for! 🙂 I show you exactly how to do it. It’s easy. Even easier than the ruffles video I shared last week. But it takes longer – that’s why I waited to do it second.

Want to know something else? You don’t have to do this only on a skirt. You could totally stitch a rainbow like this around the hem of a regular T-shirt and it would look awesome! Just make sure it’s not too tight a T-shirt, because this stitching will kill the stretch.

Want even fancier fancification? Jump ahead to this post showing how to crochet a scalloped hem. Oooh. . . 🙂

Happy stitching, everyone!
