This first in a series of printed samplers to embroider is hand drawn and printed on cotton. You'll learn 15 new stitches and once completed, you'll have a resource to look back on for future projects as well as a cool embroidery to hang on your wall. It arrives ready to stitch!

+ 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.
