Video tutorial: Embellishing fabrics with embroidery
Over the years I’ve published a few embroidery tutorials to embellish quilts  or other items. A lot of the time I use 5 different stitches: line stitch, chain stitch, stem stitch, french knots and lazy daisy.

If you haven’t tried embroidery yet, this is your chance to learn with this short video.
