Baker's Twine Embroidery Tutorial

Check out my cute little embroidered heart. The heart looks like I used Baker's Twine, huh? But it isn't. Because think about it. If I were to have used Baker's Twine, there isn't a stitch that could be used to have the final product actually look like continuous Baker's Twine. There would be breaks in the twine as it made its way in and out of the fabric. So here's how I did it:

Jenny Doh First, I drew a heart with a water-soluble fabric marker and then stitched the heart with white perle cotton using a running stitch.

Jenny Doh Next, I took red perle cotton and pulled it up and then wove it through the first white running stitch, from the inside of the heart.

Jenny Doh Then I went into the next running stitch, again from the inside of the heart.

Jenny Doh I did this over and over until the heart was complete. And then I took a damp cloth to dab the fabric to erase the pen marks.

Jenny Doh I have a feeling this piece will become a part of a larger piece. I wuv it.

Happy embroidery. :)
