Learn how to make a cherry pincushion
with 2 kinds of stitches and a sewing machine(※1)!
This lesson demonstrates how to make a cherry pincushion
with 2 types of stitches: chain stitches and outline stitches.
In addition to the outline stitch taught in a previous lesson
this lesson introduces the chain stitch technique to make the cherry design.
Outline stitch is used on the stems while the chain stitch makes the fleshy fruit part and the leaves.
Chain stitch, as its name suggests,
creates a series of looped stitches that forms a chain-like pattern.
Chain stitch is perfect for stitching curved lines,
and Misa also likes using it in her letter stitching projects.
In this basic chain stitch lesson,
you will learn how to stitch round cherries and oval leaves
and practice stitching curves and filling surfaces.
You will practice simple shapes like circles, curved lines, and leaves in the first part of the lesson,
and start stitching the actual product in the last part of the lesson.
Through her demonstration, Misa explains points to remember for
making even stitches as well as how to move your needle.
In addition to the stitching techniques, Misa also shares tips on
selecting suitable embroidery threads and how to unravel tangled threads.
It is a complete lesson that shows all the steps from stitching to
sewing the pincushion, so even embroidery beginners can give it a try.
Once you master the chain stitch, you can apply the learned techniques to various other letter stitching projects.
It's an essential tutorial for those who want to make different types of letter stitch works,
so take this opportunity to practice with the complimentary downloadable pattern!
After you have learned all the techniques in this lesson, try creating your own pattern and work on projects with various letters and designs.
