I have been looking for some fun and creative artwork to hang in my office at work, and I ran across this phrase one afternoon browsing through etsy stores, and just had to have it! What better advice to get you going in the middle of a procrastination meltdown: Just start!
After stretching your fabric on an embroidery hoop, use a disappearing ink fabric marker to write your saying. To keep my lettering even, I used a straight edge to draw lines as a guide.
Yellow thread coordinates well with the grey fabric and using yellow acrylic paint on the embroidery hoop will highlight the thread color.
With a basic backstitch, embroider over the marker lines.
Finally, use a wet cloth to erase the disappearing ink from under and around your lettering.
Do you ever want a prompt to “just start” too? What reminders and inspiration do you need?
