Learning embroidery stitches for beginners is a great way to pass the time while we are all adjusting to the new social distancing rules. There are so many neat things to personalize with embroidery, and these stitch tutorials will help you do exactly that.
Embroidery Stitches For Beginners: Running
A running stitch is one of the embroidery stitches that you are most likely to use the most, which means that it is one of the easiest to learn how to do. Take a look at this YouTube video from Cutesy Crafts to learn how to do it on your own.
Embroidery Stitches For Beginners: Chain Stitch
A chain stitch is a little bit thicker than the simple running stitch, but it still something that you need to learn in order to be a successful embroiderer. Check out this tutorial from Sublime Stitching, as they will walk you through the chain stitch process a step at a time. This stitch might look intimidating, but it is not.
Embroidery Stitches For Beginners: Lazy
A lazy dazy stitch, also known as a “lazy stitch” was one of the first stitches my grandmother taught me to create. For years I stitched these on my clothing, bags, jackets, and whatever else I could find. Learn how to stitch one yourself here.
Embroidery Stitches For Beginners: Fly
The fly stitch is one of my favorite embroidery stitches because it looks great anywhere that you sew it. The stitch looks a little like a zipper, so it is the perfect stitch to try out if you are looking for a bit of added visual appeal. Learn how to sew your own here.
Embroidery Stitches For Beginners: Split Stitch
The split stitch is a great way to finish off a project because it is simple, concise, and it really prevents ends from traveling. Learn how to sew one on Embroidery How To.
Embroidery Stitches for Beginners: Back Stitch
Though you might not think it, a back stitch is likely going to be one of your most-used stitches. Believe it or not, I use one on every single one of my embroidery projects, so it’s definitely a must-know. Sublime Stitching has another great tutorial that walks you through the back titch process.
Embroidery Stitches For Beginners: StemSatin
Stem stitches look a little like split stitches if you ask me. Like a split stitch, the stem satin is a long, clean line, perfect for finishing off projects. Use this tutorial if you need help walking yourself through it.
Embroidery Stitches For Beginners: Long and Short
The long and short stitch is gorgeous when put on clothing! It’s a great little stitch that creates tons of visual appeal, and who doesn’t like that? However, the long and short stitch CAN be a bit tricky to bring to fruition. This tutorial should help you get there.
