Supplies:

  • Thick cardstock
  • Embroidery thread
  • Needle
  • Scisors

Make small dots with a pecil in the shape of the letters you want. Each dot should be prety close together as shown. Take your embroidery needle and poke a hole in each dot.

Continue until all your letters are poked through with the needle

Thread your needle, tie a knot at the end and thread it up through the second hole in your first letter.

Take your needle and thread it through the first dot, pull all the way through

Thread it now up through the third hole, and then bring it down through the second

It should look like this now. Yeah! You just embroidered two stiches! Give yourself a pat on the back
