Make a quilt label, embroider a name or stitch out a favorite phrase using easy hand embroidery stitches. Here is a tutorial to show you how to transfer your text to fabric using wash-away stabilizer transfer, then stitch your message. Do you have a dark or thick fabric that will not work with a light box for tracing? Then these transfer tips that leave no marks behind on your fabric will help! You can use stranded embroidery floss or perle cotton and choose from a variety of linear stitches to get the look you want. I chose back stitch for this project: upcycled jeans.
