Read Past My Bedtime DIY Embroidery Kit
This pattern is a "hoot" for book lovers. But go on, STITCH past your bedtime too! All of the stitches are basic, introductory embroidery stitches (you can do it!). Made mostly using single stitches and the backstitch (easy peasy!). Texture and fullness is created by incorporating a detached chain (link) and a satin stitch. BTW The satin stitch is edged with a backstitch because it looks great AND hides any imperfections so you always look like a pro. It's like magic!
LEVEL: Ambitious Beginner/First Time Friendly. Choose to incorporate lots of links (detached chain) or simply use a single stitch for a very first-time friendly design.
