    How to Sew a Needle Book

    Jessy, I used your Needle Book instructions to create a Stitchery Book to display my embroidery projects. The instructions made it very easy to create; if I had any frustrations or challenges at all it was due to my bobbin tension! It's larger than your needle book: each page is 5 1/4" X 8 1/4". I used denim for the cover for durability and I had just enough leftover linen/cotton material from my embroidery class for the inside front & back covers and used felt for the pages. I wanted to display my project where I could easily access the back to see the stitching: I used the chain stitch to sew my project to the inside of the felt page and then sowed snaps on the right top and bottom corners so I could easily unsnap it to view the back of the project. My intention is t...

My intention is to add a sampler of stitches along with their respective names to the back page of each project. I have very much enjoyed this class and have found it inspiring. I plan to continue to add to my Stitchery Book with every new stitch I learn. Thank you vey much - I loved this class!!!

    Tips for Embroidering + Final Class Pattern

    I finished Lesson 11 / Project 3. I used the backstitch on all the tools and on the word: dream; used the chain stitch on the word: design; and the split stitch on the word: Make. Also, used 2 strands of floss on all stitches. The split stitch was a disastrous choice! Than, I realized you had not included the split for text after I had slaughtered the "a". Other than that, I think I did a pretty good job! Oh, almost forgot to say, I actually I have not finished the class, yet. I still owe you the Stitchery/Needle book to display my project(s). I will upload that effort once completed - I plan begin it tonight.

    Floral Stitch Sampler

    I loved this project! Had an problem with the woven spider wheel, I could not get them to lay flat. I read an earlier comment about theirs bunching up and your suggestion to not pull floss tight - I did that and by the forth flower it looked close to flat - just not sure if its flat enough. I loved the Closed Fly stitch, its probably the most beautiful stitch ever, remember I'm just learning. I had some space between a couple of stitches on the leaves and cannot figure out how that happened. Though, I'm sure there's a good explanation and would love to hear it. My backside stitches for the petals improved quite a bit after the first two, but still need practice. NOTE: Unsure what I clicked on, but the lesson reflected I had 100% completed this project when I was just beginning the Wo...

    Basic Stitch Sampler

    I really thought embroidery was a lot harder, but this lesson helped build my confidence quickly. Learned quite a lot from this project and not necessarily in this order: getting the template accurate is most important for me; the repetition pays off; reading through the lesson plan and watching your video first makes for a better understanding of the stitch path (where to go & what to do next) and I just loved working on this project it is relaxing for me.
