Personalised gifts are here to stay! I’ve had a few good and strange ones this year including, ‘Claire Our Supermum’, ‘I am bored’, ‘Smells like roses’, ‘Best Mum in the land’ and ‘O-Negative, Merv’.
I use a classic back stitch, this helps create a continuous line that’s easy to read. If a customer orders a small personalisation, ‘I am BAD’, I may use a thicker chain stitch to make the letters stand out.
How long does that take?!
Something I’m often asked. Here’s an example:
Bring coffee – 20 minutes
I am Awesome – 25 minutes
I am just so funny! – 35 minutes
Chain Stitch Initials
All StephieAnn products personalised with initials are embroidered with a chain stitch. The stitch flows round corners and great to use to make letters stand out. My pyajams, hat’s, socks, eye masks and scarves can all be embroidered with initials. Some fun facts –
1 initial – 10 minutes
My favourite letters to embroidery – S, C, J, K, H
My worst letters to embroidery – G, E, Y, D, F
“Made in a jiffy but with the utmost attention to detail. This was such a beautifully personalised gift which was a joy both to give and receive.”
