It's finally here! The May club design you've all been waiting for. By now I'm sure you've already torn open your package and gone, "Ooooh. So pretty!"
This year the club is all about choices and each month I try to help you make the best one for you. Everyone's different and thus everyone's embroidery is different. I'm just here to point out your options and the pros and cons of each. So let's get started!
There are so many ways you could stitch this gorgeous wave motif, which is why I wanted to test out every singe one for you. You can choose one stitch for the entire design, like my test stitcher did above, or you can mix and match.
My test stitcher chose the stem stitch because it's great for curves. I think her piece turned out beautifully. I just want to run my fingers over it, don't you? It reminds me of fingerprint whorls.
Want to try something other than stem stitch? Check out the image below. I tested every stitch for you, using 3 strands of thread for the test.
It's a new year and that means it's time for the club to get even cooler! You've been asking for new stitches, more intricate patterns, more options of how to customize your piece for 2019. Well, the good news is you're getting all of those!
We're starting off the year with this 'HOME' pattern because it will allow you to try out a bunch of new stitches.
You may have seen my Halloween Raven on Instagram and thought, "I want those extra feather lines!"
