How to's: embroidery stitches

Here are references I wish I'd had when starting the napkin project. Thanks, Flibbertygibbet, for the suggestion. The following tutorials are from Primrose Design's stitch school.

Learn how to choose supplies (needle, thread, hoop) here. Fortunately all this stuff is really cheap. Also pick up a fabric marker to use for drawing your stem and leaf shapes on your napkin. Choose a "disappearing" marker that fades away later.

Use this stem stitch to make stems. It turns out it's the backstitch flipped over. I'm so pleased to find I accidentally used a real, bona fide stitch! (For the most part.) I divided the embroidery floss to use 3 strands.

Use this satin stitch to make leaves.

Good luck!
