Annies Crazy World On the last seam I did a Double Feather Stitch with Colonial Knots. Then before adding embellishments I cut a window template to help place them, which is just as well because I found that the flower trail was cramped on the edge, fortunatly I had enough in the seams to make the heart about 1/4 inch bigger which gives just enough extra space so that it isn’t cramped. To Draw a basic heart shape Draw a square and then draw a half circle on 2 edges…to make it slightly more shapely, I then deepen the indent at the top just a little and slightly curve the point at the bottom, curving the bottom or just snipping of the very tip of the point will prevent the point poking through the fabric when you cover it. Trace the heart onto template plastic or any stiff plastic. I Draw the finished size of the heart onto the back of the crazy piece and Run a gathering thread around the edge, Use a big knot and start at the top of the heart…clip into the V at the top.

Embroidering names and monograms is not a new idea, however, household linen often had the owners initials embroidered on them in days gone by. Note: Before we get started I would like to mention that it is not wise to stitch their name on a young child's shirt or sweater, as it is then visible to people who you would rather your child not meet. If someone they don't know talks to them, and mentions the child's name, the little one may not realise the danger! Enough of the scary stuff, lets get started with our hand embroidery for beginners lesson.
