31 days of embroidery {couching}

Couching is one of those stitches that seems really difficult, but it’s really not. You can change the look of this stitch merely by what you use to couch.

The first time I learned how to do this was with a stitch along where I did a family name plaque.

I used a variegated yarn and some green floss to stitch down our family name. It was super easy and so much fun to do!

I tried it a second time with the bumpy yarn and really loved how it turned out.
