Embroider Bugs with Coral & Tusk

Martha Stewart Living, February 2013

Ready to try embroidering? Stephanie Housley, founder of Coral & Tusk, provided templates for some of her spring collection. She gave each pattern a paint-by-numbers treatment and says you need little more than needles, floss, a hoop, and intuition.

"For all the embroidery I've done, I still don't know the terminology," she says, laughing. Even so, outlines on the designs here can be done with a backstitch, and colors can be filled in with a satin stitch or a long-and-short stitch. For how-tos as well as other instructions on transferring the pattern to fabric, download the templates. (Open our PDF in Adobe Reader or Acrobat Pro to print.)
