Hand Embroidery Tutorials

I’ve been working on hand embroidery a lot the last few weeks and loving it!  My mother-in-law taught me how to do several different stitches a while back, and since then, I’ve been playing around with different patterns.  I’m currently working on creating my own patterns to sell in my etsy shop.  I will offer the patterns by themselves and in a kit with all the materials you need to complete the project.  For those of you that need a project completed in a rush, I’ll even have finished products ready to ship.  My goal is to have a few completed projects up and ready to purchase in the next week or two.  In the meantime, here’s a little freebie for you to work on for Valentine’s Day!
