Print out text from a computer or write by hand on a piece of paper.
Trace the text on a piece of water-soluble embroidery paper.
Fix the interfacing on the fabric using an embroidery hoop. Make sure the fabric is nice and taut.
Split up the embroidery thread and embroider with 3 strands, following the lines on the paper. Use simple backstitches or a stem stitch for the text.
Rinse the shirt in water when you are finished embroidering. Rinse until the paper has dissolved completely.
Embroidery doesn’t have to be difficult, and it certainly doesn’t have to just be about boring tablecloths and tapestries. For example, embroidered text can cheer up an ordinary T-shirt or become a lovely detail on a bag. In the description, you can see an overview of different embroidery stitches that you can try out.
