Designed by US based Embroiderer Rebecca Ringquist, Disco Nap is a fever-dream of colorful potential and mesmerizing patterns, this sampler has the entire alphabet embedded in its border.
Ideal for a beginner Rebecca stitched hers almost completely with back stitch, and others have used chain stitch for the rainbow border (love that!) and yours could be stitched any which way you like. Choose your own adventure.

+ How should I back my sampler?
For best results, I recommend backing this fabric with a second piece of fabric (cotton or linen) before placing your fabric in the hoop. You'll get the flattest,
most even stitches this way. Check out my how to for this step on creativebug or IGTV (@dropcloth)
+ What size hoops should I use? I like a size 6- but use whatever you hoop you have on hand.
