February is national embroidery month! How will you celebrate? See what embroidery author Aimee Ray has to share!
Doodle stitching is my freestyle approach to embroidery and doesn’t come with many rules. All you need is to learn a few basic stitches and techniques and then it’s up to you to choose the stitches and colors you want to use. Even if you have just a few minutes a day to stitch, set aside this time and enjoy watching your project come together little by little.
I’ve designed many of the 20 projects to create artwork that can be framed with a wooden embroidery hoop. These hoop-framed embroidery pieces are easy to hang and display, making perfect additions to any space that needs a special touch, or treasured gifts that commemorate a special date, memory, or moment. In addition to hoop framing, you’ll discover exciting ways to turn your embroidery into art pieces you can wear and turn into functional, decorative keepsakes, such as pillows, patches, small charms, and fabric scrapbooks.
Have fun with these projects and patterns! I hope you’ll enjoy learning new embroidery techniques with these projects and patterns and find lots of inspiration to create one-of-a-kind embroidery art.
