Hey Stitch Cutie,
Today is Day 117 of Stitch365 and the official start of the Spring in the Hoop Stitch Along! Today’s video coincides with Step One of the Spring in the Hoop Pattern, the tracing of your Spring in the Hoop design onto your background fabric. (Read details of the Stitch Along and join along here.)
The background fabric we used is Bella Solid Ash from Moda. It is a very light gray with just a hint of purple. Looks so lovely with the purple flowers on the stitchery! We traced the design using a brown Pigma Pen Micron01 and placed it on top of our light box, the Lori Holt Easy Trace. We do have kits available. As of today, the Spring in the Hoop Kits are back ordered but we expect the final supplies to arrive this afternoon so we can get them mailed out to you by tomorrow! The Colored Pencil Hand Embroidery Kit is also back ordered but we expect supplies to arrive by the end of the week for restocking those. Why are they back ordered? We had a one month window for pre-orders and after those shipped on the 28th of February, we were very surprised by the number of people who signed up after the pre-order date. Yay! We immediately ordered more supplies! The great thing is that the tutorial videos will live on forever, so no matter when you decide to stitch the Spring in the Hoop project or receive your kit, the videos will guide you!
Without further ado, here is today’s video:
And we would love to see your work each day. Please share pictures on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtags #springinthehoop and #stitch365!
