Holiday Hand Embroidery

We’re going back to basics with the “Merry & Bright” hand embroidery. Unlike our sampler patterns, this one sticks with just one stitch so you can get lost in the rhythm of the season. 


Grab a kit or gather the following supplies:

  • embroidery floss
  • needle
  • needle threader (optional)
  • 6″ embroidery hoop
  • fabric or muslin
  • scissors
  • pencil

Time to stitch!

You can choose if you want to use back stitch, stem stitch, or a combination of both for your lettering. I’m a big fan of stem stitch because it goes around curves like a dream. Watch these short tutorials to learn each stitch, or dive into the full video from our Word of the Year tutorial.
