1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / new and would love some URGENT help! :] on: August 05, 2006 04:14:10 PM
I'm new to embroidery, and me and my friend just went a craft store (she lives right next to one! Lucky, no?) and we just bought a kit. It has
-8 nursery squares of cotton/poly broadcloth.

There is a piece of fabric with the patterns on it and then another piece of blank white fabric. There is no direction and we dont know what to do!

Our questions.
-Would a backstitch (Or maybe a split stitch?) be best to embroider the animals?
-What do we do with the extra piece of white fabric?
-And how do we backstitch?
-Would a french knot be used to do the eyes?

We've looked online on how to backstitch, but the websites put instructions in hard to understand terms.
I know my crafter buddies can help us out on this! :]

Sorry if these questions are stupid, but we're clueless! Thanks. :]

It's a little lopsided, but it just gives it character. Wink The button is something I found on a towel skirt..thing.

The pouch on the top is where my headphones live.

It took about an hour, and I'm pretty happy with the results.
I plan on making more and adding holes so I can see my wheel and screen. What is the best material to use for the protection?
.. vinyl? Thanks for your help!
