Running Stitch with Twist
The running stitch is the most basic stitch in embroidery. We are going to add a bit of a twist to make this simple stitch into something jazzy and unique.
Materials required :
- Any Fabric (I used a T-shirt)
- Embroidery floss
- Embroidery needle
- Cardboard / any cereal box
- Tracing paper
- Pen / Pencil
- Rhinestones or Gems (optional just to bling it up)
You can begin by drawing a design on a piece of paper. Decide where on your fabric you want the design to be. Trace the design with the help of a tracing paper. You are ready to do the stitch.
