Passed your fights with your photographer, beyond the moment your nephew stuck his finger in the wedding cake, and way beyond the moment your tipsy new mother-in-law mentioned how much she loved your husband’s ex-girlfriend, you can have this: the sweetest DIY commemoration of your enduring union.
- Cotton fabric
- Embroidery scissors
- DMC embroidery needle size 5
- Embroidery hoop 7”
- Embroidery transfer pen
- DMC Mouliné embroidery thread : 434, 209, 211, 340, 915, 892, 957, 3779, 349,741, 3853, 725, 727, 3847, 320, 369, 164, 913, 3364
Transfer the design to the fabric.
Place the fabric in the embroidery hoop and tighten.
Embroider the design following the pattern using 3 strands of DMC Mouliné embroidery thread for the names and date and 2 strands of DMC Mouliné embroidery thread for the rest of the embroidery.
Make sure your fabric is nice and taut. Trim the fabric down to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the hoop. While you are cutting just press the fabric down over the Edge of the hoop.
Glue the edges of the fabric onto the back of the hoop.
Now your hoop is ready to be displayed.
