1. Introduction Hand Embroidery: I'm really looking forward to playing in the sculpture class to you and teaching you how to structure on hand. Avoided later. Absolutely love hand and boy, did he. I think it's just a lovely to spend your time, so relax in, you can just chill. Oh, you can do anytime you can do on the bus you can do on the tree and you can do it and you're bared today It's really so much fun. So I really hope you're excited about as much as I am. I've always been a creative person. Am been joined since I was a girl. I just love to to spare, maintain being creative on. And I just hope that this employee I am traditional craft, but in a more than we am appeals to use mail, so please have a go. Don't be stressed or worried about it. It's supposed to be a relax and in pastime, so within the class, I'm going to cover four Basic. Such is going to cover the street stitch the satin stitch attentional on the roof stitch these stitches will combine together will look amazing, and whatever later you choose to plead. It's a lovely can a piece of art to hang on the wall or give us a gift. Different. So within an excellent laysan, I'm gonna show you what materials you nicked from going to cover her to stage a needle. I'm going to cover what stitches we're gonna learn. And they might get started. And I really hope the issue You're working the Galati. L love to see people's creations, 11 people, Sammy forces of the finished piece of them or even their work in progress because, as all about the process on, everyone will approach it. Definitely. And that's what I love about that. It would all doing the same sketches. But everyone will look completely different. And I think that's what something that's really exciting. So let's get started. 2. Class materials: okay for this class. What we need is an embroidered hoop. I'm using 16 inches in diameter to take apart. Unscrew the metal part of the top on the two hoops. Come apart. I'll show you had to insert the fabric on the next part, the fabric amusing today. Any two pieces. One for practicing on one for the faint or peace amusing Corton. Just anything that's lying about, really is this fate. I'm using embroidery. Scissors. What? You're handy. Be very getting in amongst the stitches, a needle Strader. And in Edo, I'll show you how the needle thread it works. But you didn't serve to enter the eye of the needle on. It gives you the extra bit of species to get the thread through here, pull out the other shade of sugar, your noodle Fredo, and that should lead us. Read it. But I will demonstrate that later on, the threat I have here has embroidered if loss or embroidered the three it wherever you want to call it, it comes in six strands together. So what you would do is separate them. So what I would normally do is cutting arm's length of this force and separated into two groups of three, a faint that's quite a good size to work with. It's a good size to get through the needle, and it covers quite a good idea. So demonstrate with that titty. The other thing, I would show you a pair of Corton. There's only comes in one strand. You don't have to separate it, which is a cannon ace. It comes innovative colors, and it gives you a different effect as well. I just wanted to get a David Street. Both of those TTD and these are the colors that will be using. I don't keep the pilot limited, I think, because it gives on a sulfate from due no later. So in the next part I'm going to show you two straight your need. 3. Getting started: Okay, So before we spread the need, only I have to actually put the fabric and say the hope first. So we'll go ahead and do that. I'll just get myself organized here. So under your hip, by unscrewing the top metal part off your embroidered hope becomes two parts. So you teak the part that does not have the metal section and police on your surface. Put your fabric over the top of this and please the Hope section with the metal part over the top so that you can then taken up to make sure it's nation secured in the hope. So give it a good taken surrender Hope. Make sure there's no fabric kind of stuck in behind. Make sure its taken smooth on the back and give it we tap. And if it seems like a drum thing, you know what's take enough? So that looks quite good. Ready to get started. Okay. Can have remained is of stitches were gonna learn before with radar needle. So this is a real stitch. This is strange notes the street stitch on a satin stitch with the roasted sheikhoun due to turn but you can have color in the middle on color near ST There's laws of different variations. You can do it so much fun. So what, this later? Or they have completed less kind of shows you the difference Touches saw Got the rules stitch. I am of court, the French in ours, of course. Satin stitch to fell. The ideas, of course, French notes with a narrow stretch. And there's so many video Asians you can do is just get it. When she learned those four stretches, you can feel the whole ship, so I'll show you how to get started with this tedium. Use embroider. The force, which is six strands and what I'm going to do, is separated into two groups of three, so t click and arms leaned street. Just give a little step, and the secret to separate in this because it can be tricky, is to do it. Create gently, and I would take my time and just pill in. It slows a can and so make sure you have teeth. Piece of trade in each hand and gently just kind of tease this aids apart from each other. Some things you do too fast, you'll end up with loads of north, and it just becomes a street. So the secret is just go on a cisl. So to thread this today, I'm going to demonstrate how use minutes later. So take a needle, stranger, put it through the eye of your needle. There we go just gives you the extra species to kind of work with. Put your thread through the needle's trader Just enough to kind of make feels like it's quite securely through it. Pull the needle straighter. Backhoe through our you've seen any of your needle. Maybe a bit tricky, but just gently pull it through when she feel like the thread solely through taking it a trade off. And that should be you having one long piece of 381 short piece of thread on your needle. Tie a little note at the end of your long piece so that when you start to step through the fabric, it will not come all the way through. So let's get started on the first stitch, which will be the street stitch 4. Stitches: Okay, so the street stitch what we have to do this extravagant needles traded. I'm gonna show you some examples of the street stitch, which is this kind of lane work here. You're basically just, I think, drawing with the street. It's very good for steams of flavors or eight lane and shapes and things like that. It's basically just street. Yeah, I forgot to tell you, not at the end of my threat. I was so excited to get started. So we have to remember and tell, you know, at the end of the three, do they also come meet through the fabric? So I'll just get that secured now. And I'm just gonna do it kind of eight lane sheep, like a steam of afloat or somethin. Just a Damon street. This stitch. Make sure you're not straight at the very back of the fabric, and there's no kind of north something. Sometimes Just keep chair connect. Sometimes it can get all knotted up at the back. So I'm just gonna go in through the fabric and just choose in whatever to put the straight backs or sometimes see, it looks like a little more, but you just need to get a tease out, just going through other shape and each time just make. Surely if you will say it's going all the way through the fabric and taking up here taking up your hope and you go along because the more you hold the fabric and the hope it can have loosens off. Sometimes you could quite tense holding it take, and it can have listens. Also, you have to make sure you keep taking it. Probably just going to another couple stitches just to show you. But it's a good one to get started so you can have get confident and hold in the hoop. And that kind of nice gonna satisfied sound of the three, it going through the needle, going through the fabric. So I would maybe just finish like that, and I can add flavors of things to the lead, 2 to 1. So maybe just to stay in there. So I got from the bottom and maybe just go to the first kind of two sets of stitches on carry one. All of me to the talk. There's really no area room with us. This is just having fun playing with a thread just getting used to the feeling of the whole thing and getting just more confident as you stitch and everybody stepped, chiseled with different. That's was quite amazing about, I think, little doing the same stitches, but everyone. You approach it differently, so that's quite nice just to show you. And who would finish all from the back? It's gonna take my needle and go through a couple of stitches that are already there. People say it's commitment. It'll you have to just keep there's been sure, put it back and on and just go through a couple of stitches in the back here just to secure it. Um, snip the stated. So it's quite close to the ich. So there's no affiliates hanging on that shoe. Finished your street stitch, and I think the next one will try. Is the French not okay? So this is the French notes. Some people love it. Some people absolutely hate, but I promise you, when you have mastered it, you will love it. So what you do fresh have always come through the back. I've used a different color. Say it's week until the difference in the stitch in it is right in your left hand, and you wrap the thread around the needle twice. Hold it really secure in your left hand on. Put the needle back and rape assayed with it. Kimmit one CDO's halfway through the fabric like over your right hand, but do not let go of your left to make sure you keep the left holding the thread quite securely. Then you peel the thread all the way through to the back, and this will keep the Not, as you can see, it's attained a little note on Just check the back that there's no chemical loops and things she weaken through the back again. Poor little, both greatest fires that go to thread into left hand. Rapid really new twice. Hold it in a secure you feel the spread wanted to slay during the needle on. That's good cause you wanted to beat that tape. Once it's through the fabric, as you can see halfway. Then you can let go here. Rate and pill the needle you can see here rape assayed where the note was. Don't worry, we'll try not to get in the middle of the north Pill will be through. Obviously, if you're left handed, you have to do the opposite way, so it just works exact same. We hear just doing the opposite, So take the street in your left hand. Put the needle over the top, wrap it round 12 Put the street, then you go back in the fabric. Ray, proceed with Kim it. Once it's halfway through the fabric, you pull through and just slowly late that they'd come away from you, lived hunt and that she left with nice little French not to finish off. I would go through a couple stitches at the back, just taking a secured it and again snip the threat really quite close. So there's no threads hanging and gets caught up in a with the other section that you're going to do. So that's your three French. Not you could do different colors there really quick. Effective. You can put them all together so the next one will cover. Is this satin stitch Okay, The next step is the satin stitch, and this is a really, really good one to do is basically the street stitch, but it's all joined together. So here's an example of a satin stitch result made up of Daniel of ST Stitches, but they're covering a media. So the names for relief for Dylan and just avoid in this piece and some examples here these flavors all made from satin stitch. It gives a really nice kind of sheen to it. In the late innings and satin stitch the petals, the floor heads, you could do in different directions. It is lords of woods of me is you can use the satin stitch some more examples here after that coneflower head. This is basically just the street stitch but gathered close together. So some examples here you can use a set the satin stitch to fill a void Idiots just to build up and be cut the space with a lot of detail. You have a nice flight 80 of satin stitch, which really is quite quite effective. So I think with this the good thing to use is a pain. If you're using a later Fabby, he's a darker pain. It's invasive here, so I'm just gonna draw it kind of leaf shape here. Just gonna uses a gauge, I think. Let's get it helps when you start to do this out and stitch so feel free to door shape of your of your choice. It could be bigger than this. It could be small, but I'm just in a smaller one. For the purposes of this to show you somebody change my three in color flavor to show you the difference. Gonna go for clear 1/4? This is the fate I was talking about. Reid will have to stay pretty. It's quite nice. So I'm just going to take that kind of arms lanes of that. No. Just trip. He's a snake's competing color, but thanks for the leaf. And so I'm going to use my little needle straighter again. Put a little straighter through the eye of the needle. But you're Prial Colton through the whole of the, you know, straighter. Just enough to kind of hold a place and then just kind of shingle, that needle surgery sometimes when the pair, according to you. But Secord, that gives you a bit of a hard retained to try and get open. That seemed to work OK, but definitely used two hands when you're taking the deal straight off so it doesn't snap. Remember, until you're not at the end of this said. Probably taken off quite a bit here because it's only a small leaf, so probably don't need that much. But I always like to make sure have enough. Three. It's so don't run over halfway through vestige so you can see you got the back. There is no three Tang in her loose, so I would start in the corner of this in Leaf, and I'm just going to go up on Dane Street cross just to fill that area to make sure it's come with me through the back there and just keep checking. There's nothing worse when you've been statute for about half an hour and you haven't checked the back of the hoop, and it's all it's all knotted and blue person everything, so just kind of going through it back to the front. Just make sure it's commodity through and just use your your gate. Whoever shape you've you've drawn and keep your your stitches quake close together and neat , but don't. But if you can have feel like after you finish the sheet, you've got some gaps. Him You can go back and fill boozy deism, so it's more debate. Just enjoin distinction. I feel like it's color and end with Read some things. It's great. Therapeutical takes me wail toe to fill the idiot But again, there's no rush. It shouldn't be a rush thing. That should be something you enjoy doing and he can pick up whenever you feel like it. You can leave that you can go back to their should be no urgency to get completely just the process of making something with your hands I think just letting your main under way, way. - Okay , so you've done your satin stitch. I speak it out for you. So you weren't waiting for hours. And the next one work, when you do is the rule stitch, which is here. I would start off with that. And then you can fill in the media with all the other stuff stitches you've just learned. So the next one yes, we'll move on to is a hostage. So let's do that. Okay. The roasted which this is one of my favorites. I really, really like little stitch. It's so much fun so you can see within this bookie have danceable stitches with the kind of different color in the center. These are little daisies to start off like a five star and you leave your thread arranger, so I'll take you through the whole post a civil stitch. But they are really effective for dinner. Later, you can see there's lots. Here have been a little finch? No, in the same time, this one aim just contrasting colors. I think it's just it gives an ace kind of texture to the whole thing. So to start off by drawing a circle, hey, help sticking it. As you can see, little big secular shapes. But hills, if you do the circle first on your fabric, and they use that as a gate for doing your five stitches, so explain that so joined the circle here, from what we're going to do is five stitches to cleat. They can have am starship that your street will get woven and over and under as you go rain the circle. So to get started, have stated money to, with your threat of Noah, the end good to come in in the centre to a good tip that some of the gave me with doing, uh, five point star shaped for your your roost. It is to do a why imagine you're doing like a later Why from the alphabet. So you would do to kind of stitches at the top here, meeting in the center, and then you would do one from the bottom coming up to clean your litter. Why? And it's usually quite equally spaced. Then you can add in your two additional stitches to make up the five and the reason we do five, because you know what number. And as you leave your street over and under these five stitches, it will clean on a skin of texture and be a representative over horse self. So I definitely things important to try and get your structures quite similar size. And also, if you used a circular shape, is a gate that will really help you. If you did it with four stitches for C six, it wouldn't work. You definitely need to have an old number. I have tried. You can give it a go yourself, but definitely try and keep the stitches all much too seem, make sure there's no looks in the back, and what you're going to do is come through the fabric in between two over the stitches. It doesn't really matter which ones just come through. I'm just checking here. The back here is take enough is something that's a bit lous. So No, that's fate. I know. Just come through the back in between these two stitches here, and this is only time to put the needle through the fabric in this point until the until the end does. So what you're going to do is you're going to weave your needle an innate, these five kind of stitches. So the 1st 1 you're gonna go over so you go under the 2nd 1 The secret of creating a really natural stitch is keeping it quite lush. Don't pull it to take an innocent What she doesn't get caught in the kind of metal part of your group is well, And as you stepped, you just turn your group arraigned. Makes it easier for you so you can get your here. You don't And because it can be a bit tricky if you're your stitches are quite small. But I would recommend starting off, but really about this size just to give yourself an idea. If you do a huge make circle, then it would take you a lot longer to do it. So I think for the purpose of practicing have a definitely just doing a bit this size and just turn your hip as you go around keeping it in a sinless. And what you want to do with this this once you've covered all those five stitches that she finished the postage, you start to see it take a faked really quite quickly. It's a really nice touch to do so. I'm just gonna near the end here. Stitching. Arrange once you've covered that whole circle or the five stitches, if you haven't drawing a circle, then you would just put your needle through the back of the fabric. But I'll show you that when it's time to do that is an ace stitch to do. If you wanted to do two different colors, is me. Oh, we have doing that as you would start off with one color and then maybe just do 1/4 of the in a render circle, put it for the back taken or for a couple of stitches, and then introduced your second color. The scene we in between two stitches and just continue until you've covered up those five stitches. Alternatively, do a real stitch and then go back into and do French notes in the center in a different color, which is question quite Mesa's wail. There's just so many things to try it, so just have fun with it and you may find a way the grand you, me that I have never heard off, so just keep going. Reindeer. I'm nearly finished it. The I'm really at the end. You can see that the ho it has been covered. I'm not pulling to take you quit. Let's just go use your needle to press Stone to make sure that it's not getting too bulky. So I'm going for the back here because that's me, finished with during that stretch and then just kind of to a couple of such is through the back and the monks the stitches had just done. But don't pull to take because you don't want to under all that good work. Give just done, and you wanted to keep equate lous. So if you pull too hard during you accidentally pull over through its, it's going to make him a seat of one now, but it can't be fixed, so That's a lovely Mitro stitch, Okay? And I'll show you some just wanted over what shoe? And they were made before. So they the 2 to 1 rose stretch. So what? This one I started over the peach color in the center right, drained it for a bit and then added the blue color around the age. And you can do that, just making sure that you don't get all tangled up in the back here. It's a nice kind of stitch to do so I would start with the one calendar center, and then I go into the next one. For example, you could also put a little bit within a, which is nice. You could do that and say, the roof stitch I would start off with doing the circles am for the postage and your later . So I've already am joined a template off a later that I'm going to do, going to elect a really which will complete my collection of been working on. So as you can see a drawer note, the letter V onto this piece of datum have started off reporting with input in the board's stitches and then within those blank areas I will fill them with satin stitch a French notes and hope it will could be completed with the stitches that you've just learned. 5. Drawing out your letter: okay. You want to transfer your later on to your fabric? So what do you do? You can use a variety of things. So this one I used am a template that cut out of paper. You can actually start by planting off later from AM worked forever on the computer, as long as it fits within the size of your hoop. So I would measure that at first and just double check that it will fit and your space. Take a chase and paper and join eight lane off the later when the back of the chase and paper. Use a dark, soft pain soul to kind of cover that idea them. You play stone on that tracing paper with your pencil. It will transfer onto the fabric and give you that Oatley. Alternatively, you could use carbon paper. Make sure the shady state faces dome. Put your later over the top of this carbon paper. It can be quite may cease to be careful, and Daleen heavily rent a stage of your later and that will transferred onto the fabric so either of those two e's will work. Just be careful with the carbon paper because it can smudge and it make mark your fingers forever. This is what I've used when it was another. Later, as you could draw it that later on to card, cut out the inside of it and that gives you a template. Obviously, this one is too big for the size of Hooper have. But it gives you another option to do it. So with that, I have old age is on May later and I used await pencil or what? Pain on the darker fabric being that main twin, your user darker fabric. You may have to use a weight jail pin, which is quite handy or one of these pains that disappears after the iron, which you won't need to worry about because you're gonna be stitching enemy and you want to cover it up. So with this one, and I use the template to droid later ale. And then I started kind of filling in the space with the stitches had land so seem with this latest e have all been used him all use templates to create the sheep sort two d. I'm going to start with the rules stitch first, as you can see of plotted ate the idiots when I went to put the road stretch to start. It's quite a good one to start with, because you need more space to kind of weave the thread and a note, and then I'll continue with the French, nor the satin stitch and the street stitch. 6. Filling the area: Okay. So as you can see, it's time to fill in the rest of your idea. So I've got the rules. Stitches already put in. I may add more later. As you can see, this is what I am the mean one that you would do to fill in your sheep. Then you continue with the satin stitch, the finch north as ST stepped. Whoever you want to do so with this have drawn it. I am a little leaf ship and I think I'm going toe. Keep that for the satin stitch. And right now I'm going to concentrate and do infringe notes in this area here. So I'm just going to start off by doing a couple of French notes in this kind of dark bring color. Some hold on the left hand. Goodnight twice extrude police in my right hand on creating on a strange note clerical. So I'm going to fill in this idea with French knows I'm going to leave spaces because I want to break up with other stitches. So probably use other French notes within this idea, but will use a different color. And that's another. We, too, can have change things up a bit and just filling in this e DHEA as you go, you will get faceted doing the French notes. It definitely does help if you have on the who point of flat surface see some teams that you Pilet to take And what's this laid right now in the middle so long as you keep that left hand told in this ed quite therapeutic and just you can't help touching them Really nice. So as you can see, I speak without there and of course, quite a few in the media. Now I have changed my three toe white. I'm just gonna go back and and kind of fill in the gaps that in this top left hand corner of the his rap friend halfway through the said a through the fabric and killed angel strip . With that, you need to keep check in the back, you see to make sure there's no big lips. That's just the from Earth reads from, and so I just give Trump and just keep making sure you're taking up. You're hoping the fabric is still nascent. Talk within the hoop so it doesn't go oldest but you. This will become second nature doing your French, Not some. Or you do, The more confident you get, you can trade different things, get experimental weather and use like four threads instead of justly, you could use five whatever. You almost like a different effect each time. If you want a bigger look, a chunkier look thing you would maybe wrap around three times. But the standard is to on a late to use three strands of three IT FM using embroidered a loss with the pair 1/4. It would just be one. So a filled in this city again if I did pink green weight and it's been a slow, kind of almost glutted effect. I think it's really nice. I like watching the process of it and not just like start to finish is it could be really nice just toe. I see different stages. So I gotta know in the end of a threat here on, I'm going to do a kind of show. You had to do it kind of leaf shape here, so sometimes you could draw if you wanted, but sometimes you just decide just to go. But I'm going to use a pain here. Just I think I think it sometimes helps when you have a gay Dana be especially when you're starting, there's no harm. Just draw a sheep and full of that. So we're going to leave shape here, so come through from the back and what I'm going to do is use a satin step sort. I'm really just going to be going from one state to the other. Nice, neat stitches overstayed each other to keep it nice and smooth. And I just continue doing that to cover that idea. I will show you lied to the one had to do a kind of leaf sheep where it comes in from the center and go from left to right crossing over to give that kind of more realistic leaf shape. So looks more like the veins of the leaf. So I woke over that ensure you again. You will find your own way of doing it. You bull experiment on. Sometimes you'll do something in the seal. That's not what I plan to do, but actually turned out really nice in the end. And if you know, happy with something, you can just unpick it on start again. So I think that's what can I get you a bit more confidence to have fun? Because you know that. You know, it's not saying store. You can unpick it if you're no happy but hopefully you'll enjoy there the whole relax ation of old. So I'm almost finished this stem here. Sorry, this leaf. And I'm sure you heard. Then finish that off at the back. Just be careful when you are stitching and you've got your role stitch there. It's very delicate. If you catch that, I am so says Asian me there. If you catch it, it can affect your I am your host stitching. Maybe you make pool and not realize you're caught up. So I would just be careful when you're doing that again. Of your blank idea, there would have feel like it's not filled completely. So I just went back and felt and and that's what you can do. So that looks get happy with that. I'll just go over the back. Do a couple of back. Such is on just trim off Crystal is north raids hanging, as you can see, is that message back. But we're looking at the front. We're not looking at the back so that way, and I think that looks it. I will continue, probably with some more. Maybe so We're French notes. Got a little leaf there that I did a well, sure yelled Damon Street. That and that's a satin stitch there. So you can see all your stitches are coming together. All the ones you've learned you could have put in the mall into practice. No, and seen ho. It all comes as one look in a bigger picture thing. So now I'm going to do a leaf ship. So this is kind of when I was talking about side become street Dane, the center like that Just pretend that sustain off the leaf. And I'm going to come across left to rape just to be It looks here, if you true, the shape of a leaf they knew would fall. That is your gate like you did with this Adam Stretch. Except you're going to come in close to where that original stitch waas and then cross over your original stitch and then go back up to the right here on a crossover, your center stitch, and just continue kind of lifted rate, and it gives that in a skin of almost jagged leaf tape. Perfect. And don't whatever any gaps that you have in between some rules stitches and the age of your later these will happen. But that's where the French notes come in. And they're quite good, that kind of covering those areas up. Or you could use your satin stitch and just do an a cto flat surface of satin stitch. And it just gives a nice contrast. Tual, the other more textured stitches. There appeared an arranger later. It just gives an ace little balance to it. So we're almost at the end of this least shape. As you can see, it's great. You see, it could have coming together. Name like that can have fun. Fake tits. Niece. Yeah, I'm just go through the back the same on back. Couple of stitches. Dis acute it. Okay, I'm going to continue Phil in the face of this letter B and the next part, I'll show you hate to finish off the back of your hip 7. Finishing off your hoop: Okay, so I finished my letter B. As you can see, I filled in the whole area using the force touches that I showed you. So I think it's quite effective. I'm happy with it. Andi, I wouldn't go on a show you in this part. So to finish off the back of the Purcell, as you can see here, afforded around the back of the hope using used double sided tape Andi just gives a Nacer finish. I'm going to show you how today and put some feel on the back. If you're gonna hang up, see that one's not enough Thrown about, this one's got failed. It just finishes off quite nicely. You can structure in the age here, or you can use glue, so it's quite handy. But I do like the double sided tape because that will help secure your fabric around it and hold it in place. And then you can use your glue on top of the field. If you wish to do that and then finish off the little ribbon tied in to talk and you can hang up. And I'm really excited to see how this is going to look. So I'll show you. Why have I would approach this as you can see, abuser scrap piece of datum so you can have to work with what you've got when you use scraps. So as you can see, some parts of this we but longer. So if I fold this over its tube. Okay, So what I'm going to do is just give a little trim. I'm just going to trim the age of this part here. The rest of the fabric looks or key to go in the hoop. As long as you have enough of it to kind of wrap around the inner trip, then that should be faint. You just don't want any vaccum shortlists. It's not very nice of It's too bulky. So that looks OK. Just know. And I'm just going to test yet that looks is a record for that around the hoop. So they will get a double safety tip What you could do? Yeah, you're gonna stitch all the way around here. If you had fabric that was a little bigger. Like give you the bigger media. Obviously, I'm you're working with scraps will have a smaller limited a moment. But this one I've used ever in a stitch to pill reigned Pillet Tate And then that just helps Ticket of fooled and the fabric on the back in addition to the the double sided tape . But I don't have enough fabric to do that, so I'm just gonna go ahead and use this double sided tape. This is a good size because it fits perfectly within the weather off the hoop. He would want a Nadal won by other than a thicker tapes and what your your hope is and just go arrange place and we can share your press and quite heart. Make sure that this tape sticks to the stayed off the hook and just continue until you're back to where you started pushing. Make sure there's no creases, and it could be quite tricky to get. Make sure since rate there just gonna fill it back and then push it again. So once you get to the end, just give a little cup. Are you convinced if it doesn't rip because as quite tricky, use your little scissors, press up against the hope and then pew peel the top player back off. Before you do that, I just make sure you press all the way around. Just could have easily any kinks at anything like that, because you want to. You really want to get a good finish After spending all that team embroidered that you want it to look its best. So you just gonna feign Jurij and peel back carefully May contribute only peeling back the bit that comes over. You know, you're not the whole tape. So once you've done that, you can fold over your your fabric. I'm using datum, so I have to can be quite firm with it for use in court and will be thinner. Then you may be okey with its sticking, but with the data might have to make sure that it sticks well to. So you have to be quite firm weather. So just continue to do that. All the reader into hope until you get to the end. Nothing that looks cricket. Check on the other shade, and the difference it makes is lovely. Just make sure you have taken up the hook there, and then what you can do, Just give it a little push so that age comes over a little bit from the front of you can see what I'm doing here, pushing the back up through the front just so that gives a nice little raised age. I don't know why it just makes it because any little finish and then I'll continue. Pulip. We put my letters together just to see how it is going to look. Emily, To say the word Love fun. I'm gonna hang the in my hallway, So yeah, that looks get hungry. Excited about that. Okay, so, no, that we've done that. I'm gonna show you how to put your feel on the back. What you would do is make sure you have a piece of field that's big enough to cover your hope. So, Officer, the site isn't. Just know. I'm just demonstrated. You would draw around a cut of the sheep police on the back of your hope. And then you would get your your glue. Just craft glue or anything, as long as it's for fabric. Just put a friendly around the age. Place stone on your field. Make sure it's great secure. Then you can do a little stitch going. All of the rain, the edge if you want to. What if you want to just leave it with the glue, then that's absolutely fine. As long as it's strong enough glucose t and then finish off with a little ribbon. Ellie, this little velvet ribbon. It's quite an ace with get a little bowl or something, just to give it that you finishing touch and then hang up on the world. I think you could actually have a collection of from all different ones whose sister needs peace, and there's something different toe hang on the wall. 8.
