Super cute! I always wanted to know how these were made and now I know and feel confident that I can make one too!
Great last minute gift idea! Finished product is gorgeous! Easy to learn, even for a newbie embroiderer like me. Very well laid out class, easy to follow, very likable instructor. This is one of the best classes I've taken on Skillshare (so far). Thanks!
This is a simple to follow, yet thorough and in-depth class that really covers each step in making your French Knot pendant I found the teacher to be really clear and helpful, and the explanation for making the French knot is one of the best I've seen. This will really give you confidence for exploring more embroidery, and creatively using your new-found stitching skills.
