Hi All! Are you ready for some simple hand sewing knots? This is the basic knowledge you need to get you started hand sewing. Then we can talk about mending. And then altering! WE WILL DO WHAT WE WANT TO OUR CLOTHES! You don’t tell us!

Well, that escalated quickly. Anyway. You guys get good at this hand sewing thing cuz I got big plans for us.

Embroidery Hoop Art

Hi everyone! 
I'm really excited about this technique, you can use it to do silk style painting on any fabric.

Big thank you goes out to Nik from Wasting Thyme. She is my co-host for this one and gave 
some great tips and tricks.

Here are your list of materials:

Fabric - I got mine donated from the scrap bin at a costume shop
Embroidery hoop - easy to find at second hand/ thrift stores
Fabric paint - in the vid we use Lumiere by Jacquard and Tulip Metallics
Dye-na-Flow - a really thin fabric paint that acts like watercolor or silk paints
Paint brushes
Paint lid/palette

Here's a template, if you'd like to make yours just like ours - twinsies!

If you guys need help with a watercolor tutorial, let me know in the comments below ;)

If you make this show me on the Facebook group
