- embroidery threads in three different pinks, orange and dark grey
- an embroidery needle
- enough cotton or calico to fit in your hoop
- little sharp, snippy scissors
- your pattern
I’ve used a combination of back stitch, satin stitch and whip stitch on my embroidery, but you could easily work the whole thing in back stitch. I am definitely going to try and make you a little video on whip stitch in the next few days… but don’t hold me to that… School holidays are basically here and 8 weeks of den building, garden games and going to the Welsh coast beckons!
If you want to make it just like I did, then you can use the photo below to refer to. I’d love to see what you make so please share on Instagram with the tag #gidsyandjogang and I’ll find you.
