Tutorial Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I have a tutorial round-up to share with you today.

If you need some organization in your office, cross-stitched office supplies are a fun way to add some color to your work space. The full tutorial can be found via Camille Styles, here.

Sometimes our shoes need a little extra pick-me-up, and colorful stitches are just the trick. Visit Skunkboy to see how Katie used embroidery to re-style her canvas shoes.

If you are looking to add some variety to your stitches, head over to Purl Bee. They have some great tutorials, including one for a two-color embroidery stitch.

If you want a little more of a challenge for your stitches and want to include some amazing embellishment, try Indian Shisha embroidery via Joyful Abode. This stitch incorporates a small round mirror into the center and can be used to accent almost anything you can think of.

Hope you enjoy and give some of these a try!

Hi, I'm Kristen! I am a lover of all things stitchy and crafty. I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. My grandmother taught me how to sew Barbie clothes when I was young and I have been sewing ever since.

You can find me at Bobbypin Bandit, on Instagram, and my Etsy shop.
