Hi guys! I’m excited to be here today to share a simple embroidery DIY for Alice’s blog.
Here’s what you will need to get started:
• A moleskin notebook
• Embroidery thread and needle
On the inside cover of your notebook, sketch out your design using a pencil. I went for a simple raindrop.
Using your needle, make holes a long the lines of your design, around 0.5cm apart.
Take a length of embroidery thread (I used all 6 strands) and sew around your pre punched holes using a backstitch. This video shows you how to make the stitches.
Once you have sewn around your design, fasten off with a knot on the inside cover of the notebook. Snip the ends of the thread and you’re done!
What I love about this DIY is you can change the design and colours to suit you. You could try a monogrammed notebook or flowers perhaps!
Thanks again to Alice for having me on her blog today!
I have loved having Claireabellemakes with us this week. Her work is so delicate and gorgeous to look at. I do hope you will all continue to follow her work and do check out the interview she did with us on Tuesday. Coming up next week we have Lindsey Portas, who I am VERY excited about!!
Thank you Claire and HAPPY THURSDAY!
