for these blocks of color, i'm using (padded) satin stitch, and all 6 strands.
but instead of threading 6 strands through the needle, i threaded 3, and then doubled the floss down and knotted the end.
i used padded satin stitch for these stars on Galaxy Girl's bodice, and i wanted to share a quickie tutorial for it.
have you noticed that i use two layers of fabric when i'm stitching?
i have gotten a lot of questions over on IG about that over the years, so i thought i'd explain it again here, in case you are wondering too.
today i wanted to share my favorite way quick and easy way to finish and frame an embroidered hoop.
