Paint Brush Stitch Along

brush16Ready for another Stitch Along? Using techniques from my new book Joyful StitchingI’ll show you step-by-step how to make this lively paint brush. It only uses 7 hand embroidery stitches and there is a pattern ready for you to print and trace.


There is also a Stitch Kit available for the Paint Brush Stitch Along. You can select one or all of the items to make the brush:  the wool background fabric, hand dyed threads, and embroidery needles.

  1. Love all the swirls. I have trouble with smooth swirls. Perhaps I should draw them on background first.

    • It may be difficult to draw the swirls on wool. If I don’t like the shape, I rip out the stitches. It’s easy to remove a running stitch.

  2. I absolutely love these projects. You do know, you will be held responsible for me starting another project. ????These are so hard to resist. Thank you for the opportunity to have a chance of winning a copy of your new book.

  3. This will be fun! I’m not able to do it right away (too much on already) but I need to do it eventually, if for no other reason that to remind myself that I have a bedroom wall to paint this summer! Thanks for the inspiration!

    • The tutorial will always be under the Tutorial page, Margaret, so you can get back to it. Good luck with that wall painting!
