My personal sewing challenge for 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.
