20 minute crafter. super basic embroidery. little bit funky style.
Really, I use that stitch 90% of the time. It's easy, fast and it doesn't require thought. You can bet if I do something a lot, that means it doesn't require a lot of patience.
embroidery hoop (I find that 8in is a good working size)
(I get these from consumercrafts.com for less than $1 each)
scissors (bought from a local shop)
embroidery thread (averages about .33c per skein)
iron on transfer pencil (my favorite brand is clover in blue, you can find them on amazon).
fabric (i use all sorts but muslin is a good basic fabric to use)
See? Easy. You can do it! :) Any questions? I'll answer them in the comment section!
