Introduction: Embroidered Strawberry
Gather the necessary supplies;
Fabric on which to embroider
Thread (red, green, light green)
Something to snip thread with
Step 1: Put Fabric in Your Hoop and Sketch
Make sure the fabric is taunt before sketching your strawberry. It can be any size or shape, or you can have multiple. Try to avoid doing this in marker, as you don't want to be able to see the marks after you are done sewing.
Step 2: Outline the Berry
Only outline the part that is going to be red. Use a back stitch so your line is thicker.
Step 3: Fill in the Red
Fill in the red in shorter, patchy stitches. Your stitches should push out from the bottom center.
Step 4: Cut and Tie Off the Thread
Try to knot as close as possible to the fabric. Knot multiple times.
Step 5: Make the Seeds
Take the light green thread and fill in the blank areas around the red in even smaller stitches.
Step 6: Make the Leaves
Do this with two rows of stitches at cascading lengths.
