Yesterday, Renee over at "My Vintage Mending" did the cutest post about learning your embroidery stitches on checked gingham fabric. She found a really great booklet that shows just how to do it! I for one really needed this! I really want to learn how to embroider, but my only attempt was a disaster!
Coincidentally, I was just about to list these half aprons on Etsy today!
What a great way to learn to space your stitches!
Aren't these colors so cheerful? The stitching on this one looks like it took a lot of patience. But maybe once you get going it isn't as hard as it looks! By "hard", I mean hard to sit still! lol
