How To: Embroidery Words

If you've seen my instagram account over the past week, you will have noticed that I have been embroidering words onto EVERYTHING. It's such a lovely, relaxing pastime. 
So of course, I want to share my new-found knowledge with the world! I made a short little video that shows you how to stitch words onto things! I just used a scrap piece of fabric in this tutorial to demonstrate, but you can stitch onto really anything you can imagine - t-shirts, jumpers, backpacks, collars - you name it. This embroidery stitch (called a "split stitch") isn't only used for words - it's very versatile, so you can use it to stitch any lines you want!
For example, here is a sciencey-design I'm working on (guanine) - hopefully to be brought to life on my lab coat!
Anyway, here is the video. Enjoy, and use #diyannika via instagram to share your photos with me if you try out any of my tutorials! I love seeing what you guys come up with!


I hope you're all having a great day,
