I’m very happy to announce that I am starting a new kid’s embroidery collection! Yay! This collection will have easy to make embroidery kits that will be great for beginners to embroidery and also suitable for kids to make (for age 8 and up, adult supervision recommended). The reason this embroidery kit will be so good for beginners and kids is that most of the design is already colored, so you only need a few stitches to complete a project! Embroidery is a fun craft, but it is also a bit of a time consumer… and let’s face it- who got time?! So I created this collection to help you finish projects faster.
The tree house embroidery design is the first kit in this collection. In this design I used only 2 stitches, the satin stitch and the back stitch. Both are basic stitches for beginners and very common on every embroidery project you might want to do after learning how to embroider this one.
In the kit
In every kit you will receive anything you need to start embroider the design such as needle, threads, printed fabric, hoop, printed instruction and of course the video tutorial on my YouTube channel. Every kit also comes with a special cover to help you keep organize and carry your craft project around with you to stitch whenever you got a spare time (less phone time, more creative time!)

I made you a video tutorial for the tree house pattern because I know how confusing it can get when starting a new hobby. So enjoy the video and keep reading the stitch guide if you missed anything. You should subscribe to my YouTube channel to be updated of any new video click below to subscribe.
So today I want to teach you how to embroider this tree house design. We will begin with easy back stitch for the house frame, door, window and roof. I used long stitches to create an interesting look and also to save time 😉 to start a back stitch begin by pulling your needle up through the fabric and go back down with your needle to the other side of the fabric leaving a space of 1-1.5 inch forward. That’s a regular stitch, easy right? Now go up again with your needle but this time poke the fabric a step ahead leaving the same space of your last stitch. To complete the stitch go back down with your needle from where your last stitch ended. This is way this stitch is called a back stitch, because you always go back with you stitches.
I have also used back stitch for the trees, but here I used very small and close stitches because the outline has a lot of curves. You can watch all of that in the video tutorial.
Now let’s try the satin stich. I used satin stitch for the flags in the cute little flag banner. Poke your fabric up from one side of the shape’s outline, and then back down from the other side of the outline. Keep going like that over and over until you fill out the shape. You can add details like string and ladder with back stitch.
I hope this embroidery tutorial help you and I encourage you to start embroider! I hope this kit will make it easier for you and I will love to hear if you got it to your kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews 🙂 let me know in the comments.
