Sewing my own clothes, making fabric toys, teaching textiles and drawing with stitch
My personal sewing challenge for 2019!
January 5, 2019
I've decided to teach myself the art of traditional embroidery- one new type of stitch everyday (where possible!)
Having made quite a few clothes for myself towards the end of last year I've decided to do some slow sewing and work small by perfecting my hand sewing skills.
I am using this book of embroidery by the Royal school of Needlework as my guide and am planning on working through it starting with 'outline stitches'.
I received this from the RSN after I put in a bid for my school to receive a class project resources pack and was lucky enough to be sent this, along with a wonderful selection of threads, fabrics, frames and more to use in my lessons.
So far on day 5 of 2019 I have tried: stem stitch, split stitch, coral stitch, chain stitch and couching.
