…and sew on

So my second infuser bag was too big, which prompted my first embroidery lesson. When I was finished, I was told that it’s good enough to give someone as a present!

I learned how to do running stitch (the pink), and come up alternately from underwear and overhand to create a wavy effect (the purple). And then I was show to draw around a shape and backstitch (the green). I knew how to backstitch, but hadn’t done shapes before. The thread is some Anchor Perle cotton that I got as a job lot on eBay aaaaages back
