This “Makers Gonna Make” embroidery pattern uses simple stem and back stitches to make hoop art, a patch, or to stitch onto a finished project like a bag or hat.
Inspired by my sister in law—who is a maker to her core—I had been pondering something to make her for her birthday. It snuck up on me in July, so it is now her Christmas gift 😆
I’m not sure whether I’m going to leave it as hoop art or not. Honestly, she’s a more practical person, so I’m thinking it will go on the front of a reusable shopping bag (for all our trips to the hobby and craft stores)!
If you are new to embroidery, please don’t feel intimidated! Here is a video of how to make a stem stitch, and here is one for making a back stitch. Here is also a tutorial for making a cute little sewing kit in a tin! I keep mine in my purse for quick repairs if I’m out of the house or for working on projects while out and about.
In addition to this patch and bag for my sister-in-love, I'm stitching up some toddler yo-yos and narwhal softies for the little ones and lace chokers for Halloween and Victorian Christmas festivals! What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Let me know in the comments!
