This video will go over how to embroider
a heart into fabric. First off, the supplies necessary will be a scissors,
embroidery ring, a needle, colored thread, fabric and a pen or pencil. Using the
provided embroidery ring, loosen the screw that keeps the two rings together.
The rings will fully separate. Place the square piece of fabric on top of the
smaller ring. Place the larger ring on top of the fabric so that the fabric is
between the large and small ring. Tighten the screw until the fabric is secured
between both rings. Sketch a heart on the fabric using a pen or chalk. The heart
can be any size desired but should be at least half an inch smaller than the
embroidery ring. Cut a two-foot-long piece of thread and then you’re going to
insert the thread through the eye of the needle and pull about four inches of
thread through the needle. And there’s a few tips to make this step easier. One:
you can cut the end of the string at an angle and then lick or wet the edge of
the thread to help the fibers stick together.
This step may take a minute so just be patient. Next you are going to tie
a knot on the opposite end of the thread and then double knot for security. So starting at the bottom edge of the
heart push the needle through the back of the fabric and pull snug until the
knot at the end of the string is against the back of the fabric. Poke the needle
an eighth inch away from the initial stitch through the back of the fabric
following the outline of the heart. Once at the back of the fabric, push the
needle 1/4 inch past the initial stitch. Now, there will be a small gap in between
the stitches. Push the needle through the previous stitch hole. You’ll be
going backwards with the needle and pull through.
There should be two stitches now with no gaps. Now, you’re going to repeat this
stitch until the design is complete stitching forward and then backward
around the outline of the heart. And once you have reached your starting
point and completed the design, pull the needle to the back of the fabric and
make a knot by looping the string through a previous stitch. And repeat two
times for security. Then, just trim those loose threads and excess fabric outside
of the embroidery ring and you are done!!
