Tutorial Thursday: Embroidered Notebook ♥

Embroidered-Raindrop-Notebook

Hi guys! I’m excited to be here today to share a simple embroidery DIY for Alice’s blog.

Embroidered-Raindrop-Notebook-1

Here’s what you will need to get started:

• A moleskin notebook

• Embroidery thread and needle

• Pencil

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!
