Mother's Day DIY
Supplies (we got ours at JoAnn):
- sweatshirt of your choice (ours is old navy - v cute)
- embroidery floss
- embroidery hoop
Prep your sweatshirt by taping your word on where you want it placed. Make sure it's straight.
Place the smaller embroidery hoop beneath the fabric and the larger hoop on top, as you make the fabric taut. Tighten the top hoop.
Mark off with tape where you want the embroidery to go, so you can make sure it's straight and you don't get crazy with the width!
Double knot your thread and start from behind, and sew one stitch.
When a thread is in the back, poke the needle one stitch forward from where your last stick is (see photo), then fill in the gap backwards and thread a stitch right above the last one you did. Repeat until you finish your word.
Find a stitch on the back and, creating a knot with your current line of thread, finish it off!
WEAR IT WITH CONFIDENCE (and maybe a little spit-up). Haha.
