Embroidery 101

Astrology Embroidery! Fun to say and fun to make! :p

Embroidery is an ages old tradition but we’re putting a modern spin on it! Make your own embroidered wall art in your astrology sign or a loved one’s.

The stars, lines, and shapes lend themselves perfectly to being embroidered and we’ll be using dark fabric with light colored and metallic embroidery floss to create a gorgeous art piece of your constellation!

Pick up a hoop and needle with us and learn 10 basic embroidery stitches. We’ll go over everything from start (stretching your fabric) to finish (what do you do with the back and all that fabric?!).

You’ll practice a variety of basic stitches first, including back stitch, running stitch, lazy daisy, chain stitch, woven rose, and more! Then you’ll choose from a selection of astrology design templates to put your newly learned skills to use and make a custom masterpiece to take home. Because practice makes perfect!

Why we love this workshop:
Embroidery is a relaxing past-time that’s a great way to customize and dress up a variety of fabric things you already own from jeans and t-shirts to backpacks and hats. Our favorite is stitching up our converse!

What you get:

  • Step-by-step instruction

  • All project supplies included

  • Practice fabric to keep and reference sheet

  • Take home 1 custom piece of embroidery artwork

  • Knowledge to continue making beautiful embroidery on your own!
