Threading the Needle

For this pattern, we will use all 6 strands of the embroidery floss.
I like to use around 60cm or more of each floss.
While it’s not best practice to double or triple knot the end of the
floss, I like to. When finishing the stitch I also like to double and
triple knot at the back to keep everything secure.

Setting the Hoop Up

When setting up your hoop, you want the fabric nice and tight,
almost like a drum. Cut the fabric around the hoop, leaving a couple
of inches of fabric right around the outside of the hoop. We do this so
we can glue the fabric down when we complete the backing, later on
in this tutorial.

The Stitches

This Pattern uses 5 different basic embroidery stitches. Below shows
a step-by-step picture tutorial for each stitch.
The stitches we will be learning:

  • Wagon Wheel Rose
  • Back Stitch
  • French Knot
  • Lazy Daisy
  • Stem Stitch

How to Finish the Back (Optional)

Finishing the back basically means covering the back and tucking away
any sticking out fabric from the sides of the hoop so it looks tidy
when you showcase it on your wall.

Step 1:
Remove the finished embroidery from the hoop
Step 2:
To the back of the embroidery fabric add your choice of backing
fabric. The fabric should sit with the wrong sides together. If the
fabric is see-through you can double-layer it or triple-layer. You could
also put a piece of felt in between.
Step 3:
Put your work back into the hoop
Step 4:
Cut around the hoop, leave enough fabric to be able to wrap the
the fabric around the back.
Step 5:
Tuck the fabric behind the frame. You can tuck and glue it
on the side and a little bit under the inside of the embroidery hoop.
Step 6:
Cut away any excess fabric if there is any.
