Embroidered jeweller is so cute and fun - here's how to make it! I recently launched a range of DIY embroidered jewellery kits that feature a 3-piece pendant setting that's different to the normal mini hoops. Here's how to put them together!
Subtitles are available - just hit the little cog and turn them on.
Pop your fabric in the hoop, making sure it’s nice and taut.
Grab your soluble transfer and cut around the blue line.
Stick the transfer on to your fabric. Do a quick running stitch around the edge to secure it (this is optional but helps!)
Embroider your necklace/brooch as per the embroidery guide.
When you’re done, remove the fabric from the hoop and cut around the red line (going through the fabric and transfer)
Soak your embroidery in lukewarm water for 15 minutes. Give it a rinse under a tap to make sure all the transfer has gone.
Gently roll it in a clean towel to remove any excess water and then leave to dry flat.
Repeat steps 5 and 6 if the transfer paper hasn’t completely gone or it has left any residue behind.
When it’s dry and you’re satisfied, use the black perle thread to do a running stitch close to the edge of the piece. Keep stitches around 3-4mm long. Do not secure or cut the thread yet.
Grab the middle section of your jewellery setting and pop it behind your embroidery. Pull your stitches tight like a drawstring so the fabric closes around the middle setting piece.
Stitch up the fabric so it is really secure - just do lots of random stitches across the back in all directions!
Pop the front and back of the jewellery setting around the middle piece and push the little tabs on the front piece down to secure - either use pliers or scissors (carefully)!
If you’re making a necklace, pop the chain through and you’re done!
