Upcycled Apron

By Yarn and Needlework Contributor Stephanie from the blog Twilly 23

Spending more time in the kitchen lately? Homemade meals taste delicious but cooking stains can be a pain to wash out of clothing. Dive into your fabric stash to make yourself an apron. Or follow my lead and upcycle an old tablecloth. If you are a beginner sewer this is an excellent project to practice your skills. This pattern will also teach you how to do a French seam.

Flower Embroidery Pattern

Guest Blogger, Amanda from the blog Crewel Ghoul

Spring is here, so what better way to celebrate than to make a daisy embroidery! I’ll show you an easy way to embroider daisies in this beginner hand embroidery tutorial.

Supplies needed:

Transfer the pattern: Use a lightbox or sunny window to trace the pattern onto the fabric using the stencil provided. It is easiest to do this when the fabric is secured tightly in the embroidery hoop.

Flower petals: Make satin stitches running across the length of the petals with white. Repeat on all petals of the flowers.

Satin Stitch: Straight stitches stitched side by side one another to fill in an area.

Center of flowers: Fill in with french knots with yellow. 

French knot: Come up through the back of the fabric. With your non-working hand, hold the thread between your thumb and forefinger. Using your needle, wrap the thread around the thread you are holding. Go back down through the fabric through or near the initial stitch you made, keeping the thread wrapped securely around the needle while you pull the thread down through the fabric.

  1. Leaves: Make a detached chain stitch for each of the leaves. Fill in the center of the detached chain stitch with a single straight stitch.

Detached Chain Stitch: Come up through the back of the fabric. Go back down through the hole you came up through with your needle (do not pull the needle all the way through, just halfway) and then with the tip of your needle poke through slightly above the initial hole. Catch the loop of thread around the tip of the needle and pull the rest of the way through. Secure the loop by making a tiny stitch over the loop.
