How to stitch a unique back to school look
Place the inner hoop inside the bag and secure the outer hoop over it on the outside of the bag, stretching the fabric tight.
Use a pencil to lightly draw the pattern you would like to stitch onto your bag.
Thread your needle with brightly coloured embroidery floss, tie a knot at one end and stitch through the fabric following your design. For more information on different embroidery stitches, take a look at our tutorial here.
Move the hoop around to different parts of your bag to stitch motifs all over. If an area is too difficult to fit your hoop, try a smaller hoop or stitch freehand without one. Be careful not to pull your stitches too tight.
- Iron on patterns can also be used
- Secure the threads in the back and trim them
