I’ve just added a new embroidery class to the workshop collection. In this hand embroidery class, you’ll learn how to embroider a small ginkgo leaf using the chain stitch and turn it into a small brooch with a leather or cork-leather backing. It's an intermediate level class, but if you are a confident beginner you should give it a try. The class includes a free ginkgo leaf embroidery pattern in different shapes and sizes.
What we'll cover in this online embroidery class:
- Materials & tools
- How to transfer the embroidery design onto fabric light and dark fabrics
- Threading your embroidery needle & invisible ways to start your thread
- Chain stitch & reverse chain stitch
- Double Running Stitch or Holbein Stitch to outline the leaf
- How to turn your embroidered leaf into a brooch with textile glue and (cork)leather
Another option is to subscribe for a free 2-month trial to Skillshare to take the class (you'll need a credit card). If you’re not familiar, Skillshare is an online learning community with thousands of classes on everything from business to graphic design to sashiko embroidery and sewing – it’s the Netflix of learning.
By using this link * to my class to sign up for a Skillshare Premium Membership, not only will you be able to enroll in my class, but you’ll also gain access to all other classes on Skillshare starting with a two-month free trial.
If you know of anyone else that’d be interested to learn ho to embroider a ginkgo leaf brooch I’d appreciate if you’d share the link with them too.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
