What do I need for this project:
- scissors/ circle cutter
- embroidery threads
- embroidery needle
- glue/ hot glue
How to copy the pattern to the felt:
First I measured the top of the jar lid and then cut a circle that matched that size. If your circle is too big or too small or not really round properly, you can add a ribbon around it to cover it.
Now download the free printable, from the top of this page. Print it in your home printer and choose one of the designs. To transfer the pattern to fabric or felt you can use a light box, copy pen, hold it against a window or just track the design by hand.
How to stitch the patterns:
The lips embroidery pattern
Use satin stitch to stitch this embroidery lips design. You just fill the shape from one side to the other, I think vertically will work best here. To learn how to embroider satin stitch you can watch this video tutorial. I used 6 strings thread for this design.
The flower bouquet pattern
This pattern is harder to transfer because of the small details, so I recommend to just copy the lines of the flower stalks and then add the flowers when you stitch. For the stalk I did running stitch watch this video to learn how, and I use satin stitch for the wrap around the bouquet. Then for flowers I added french knots and lazy daisy flowers. I used 3 strings thread for this design.
The hearts pattern
For the hearts I just use back stitch. It is a very easy stitch and you can use it for most of the designs here if you want to keep it simple. I made this video tutorial to help you with this stitch. I used 3 strings thread for this design.
The text patterns
You can use all kinds of stitches for this designs, the easiest way to embroider text is with back stitch. You can also try split stitch but it might be hard in this case because the letters are pretty small. I would use 3 strings thread for this design. Here is a video about everything you need to know about text embroiery.
The gift box pattern
I recommend beginners to use just back stitch for this pattern. If you are familiar with satin stitch you can also stitch some elements or the entire shape with satin stitch.
