Hi Everyone!  Welcome to the “S is for Stitch” blog hop!  I’ve been lucky enough to receive a copy of this book and I’ve had so much fun looking through all the embroidery projects.  If you love embroidery, you’ll love this book!

S is for Stitch

Kristyne over at Pretty By Hand, is the author of S is for Stitch.  It’s her first book and it’s so cute!  It’s perfect for beginners, teens, tweens, and everyone!   With embroidery designs for girls or boys she’s right up my alley.  S is for Stitch has 2 alphabets, along with embroideries for each.  A is for Angel…or maybe an ant.  Are you a ballerina or is baseball more your style? You’ll find them all in this book.

What little boy wouldn’t want this little car stitched on a pair of jeans or favorite shirt?  Stitch 3 cars in a row and you’ve got a picture just waiting to be framed.

You can take any of the embroidery designs in Kristyne’s book and stitch so many pretty things!   I just couldn’t resist stitching the angel wings.  I combined one strand of silver metallic floss, with 3 strands of embroidery floss to give the embroidery a little sparkle.  You can stitch the designs individually like I did, or combine them for a cute ABC quilt for your little one.   Kristyne gives you great directions and makes it easy.

Don’t you just love this little quilt?  You’ll find complete directions in Kristyne’s book!

S is for Stitch answers all those embroidery questions you might have, like how to knot the floss, what kind of scissors to use, to hoop or not hoop?  I loved the “how to” section with its color photos and great directions. If you don’t know how to do the quilter’s knot, this book show will show you how, and I love her tips for working with embroidery floss.
