Simple embroidery can enhance commercially printed fabric and Kate Barlow gives you a series of great hints and tips.
Kate loves to use pre-printed fabric designs as her inspiration for her embroidery skills and left over threads.
This is a great idea for those just beginning embroidery. Indeed, some of the fabrics have a cross-stitch design printed .
In this lovely workshop Kate shares with you how you can enhance the simple printed fabric sometimes just with simple running stitch and/or cross-stitch. She loves to use cotton perle threads. She also used beads and scraps of gold left over from her goldwork project.
Kate also shows how she has added some text to the open centre of the pre-printed panel. You could take this idea and personalise your item.
If you particularly like the Christmas panel – click here. There is limited stock available.
Some of the fabric Kate is using was designed by Alison Glass and is called Sunprints and can be found on the Creative Quilting website; as well as the House of Embroidery hand dyed threads.
Kate is a Royal School of Needlework trained tutor who loves using traditional techniques in a contemporary way
