Backstitch Embroidery Tutorial
I’m here with another stitch tutorial today, but plot twist, it’s for embroidery!
My next pattern is going to be a combination of crochet and embroidery, so a tutorial for embroidering onto a crochet fabric was needed!
What is so special about the backstitch?
The backstitch is a beginner embroidery stitch that is worked by starting your first stitch one stitch length ahead of the beginning of your pattern line, then sewing backwards to complete the stitch. It sounds more complicated than it is, I promise!
For this tutorial, I’ll be backstitching onto a piece of fabric made entirely of single crochet, as that is the most common crochet fabric to embroider onto due to the square-ish nature of the stitch.
Following the photo tutorial is a video tutorial, just in case you need to see it in action.
If you want to see this stitch in action, I’ve recorded a video tutorial for you as well!
Now that you have mastered the backstitch embroidery stitch, you can start playing around with drawing designs onto your crochet!
I hope you liked this tutorial! Let me know if there are any stitches you would like to see future tutorials made for!
Until next time!
