Tutorial: Embroidered chainstitch notecard

Leave a comment


  1. Draw your design onto the card in pencil
  2. Poke holes with a large needle
  3. Stitch using a smaller needle

Chainstitch is a bit of a pain to do through paper (as I discovered when making this card). If you’re not enjoying it, try backstitch instead. ☺️

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery by trying out age old techniques with a contemporary twist. I hope you enjoy looking through my projects and that they inspire you to give stitching a try!
