For this week's YouTube video I wanted to teach you all the basics to freehand embroidery. This is the same method I've used before for several of my crazy patchwork pieces that you can see hanging in the shop. I actually used the same fabric for my video; a printed curtain fabric that I never ended up using, but it was just to beautiful to throw away. In the video I teach you how to extend a piece of fabric to fit your embroidery hoop (I had to do this because mine was too big). I also show you how to do french knots, and give you some handy hints when stitching with normal and metallic embroidery thread.
I hope this has given you something to do, and maybe I've taught you something new. Expect more videos and tutorials very soon.
