Leaflet 11b in the Needlework Development Scheme’s series “And So To Embroider” includes:
- Instructions on using cut paper shapes to build up and edit embroidery designs
- Varying the look of the same shaped motif by using different stitches
- Appliqué with a couched edge
- How to make a notebook holder
Since we don’t all have access to a sewing or embroidery teacher when we get stuck, I’ve included these two video tutorials that cover the techniques in the leaflet.
