Hand stitching is one of my favorite techniques. Sometimes I use templates, sometimes I create my own. To create my title on this page I first started by cutting out the word “Oh” using my Silhouette. I then used the negative (leftover piece of paper from the cut) as a stencil to create my stitched word. With a needle, I poked holes around the word and then stitched it up using black embroidery thread. I also, added the die cut word “my” and some letter stickers to finish off my title.
I will be back next week to share my final two layouts made for the Shimelle blog! Thanks for looking!
