Embroidery Card by Cotton Clara
Cotton Clara, home of creative and colourful craft, created this lovely embroidery project for us. You could send a friend or family member a beautiful handmade embroidery card to keep their spirits up in these times.
- A card and envelope
- Some stranded cotton embroidery thread
- An embroidery needle
- Washi Tape
- A tea towel or another soft base for punching holes into the card.
- The pdf print off of this ‘Hope’ design
Print and cut out the HOPE design so that you can place it centrally on your card, when it’s central tape it down with washi tape to hold it in place.
Place your card on a folded up cloth or tea towel. Using your embroidery needle, start to punch holes at both ends of the diagonal lines on the word hope. Only punch holes where the line will be long enough to stitch, at the corners of each letter there may be very short lines, don’t punch these.
Take off your template.
Thread your needle and start to stitch diagonally, following the pattern of the template. Tie knots at the back when you have finished a length of thread. Et voilà, your very own embroidery card is done and ready to send.
