How to Embroider onto Clothes
Download the embroidery template and pick the garment you would like to upcycle.
Trace the embroidery designs onto the Magic Paper using a good light source.
Cut out (if required) and stick the Magic Paper onto the garment.
Begin stitching the designs, use our handy stitch guides to learn the different stitches you can use. Satin stitch, back stitch, split stitch and lazy daisy stitches work really well for our spring designs.
For the shoes, I have also added French knots and Lazy Daisy stitches around the main designs to fill it out.
