How To Personalize A Wedding Gift

Hi everyone, how's the week?  Looking for a perfect wedding gift for your best friend is a tough job. Recently I am looking for a wedding gift for my best friend and I come up with an idea to make it special! I designed a monogram for the bride and groom and embroidered it on a valance, and I sewed a nice little curtain to go with the gift. Let me show you how to turn an ordinary gift to a special one by adding some personalized elements.

As you can see, it's not that hard and won't take long.  You can actually do the same to your clothes too, give it a try!

For how to use different type of stitches to work on the monogram , click here to check out our previous tutorials.

Alright, that's it for today, see you again next week!  I am going to show you how to do the Split Stitch.

How to Sew The Fishbone Stitch

Hi everyone!  Today I'm going to show you how to use the Fishbone Stitch to fill leaf shapes, as the stitch creates a "vein" down the center of the leaf.  It's not difficult at all, try it!

The advantage of fish bone stitch is the “vein” is obvious at the center after you complete it and you don’t have to do anything about it afterwards! Once you master the technique, you can play around with the stitching for different shapes of leaves.

For how to use Fly Stitch to make the stem and flower, click here to check out our last week tutorial.  It's easy too!

Ok, that's it for now, see you again next week!

How to Sew The Fly Stitch

Things you need:
