Instructions include clever steps for learning ten basic stitches: Running stitch, blanket stitch, herringbone stitch, french knot, and more - Each one features a grid that matches the included cloth with solid and dotted lines to show how the needle moves on both sides of the fabric. Use one of the cloth pieces to practice each stitch. Then, grab one of the templates and start creating a beautiful, embroidered picture of a butterfly or owl.
