Upcycle a plain tee with Split stitch
Neutral knits are a wardrobe staple, but sometimes we just can’t resist getting the sewing kit out and adding our own design details! This simple project is the perfect way to practise your new split stitch skills fit you’re new to the technique.
Start by reading our split stitch tutorial above, then download our leaf embroidery pattern (at the top of this post) to start stitching. This design would look great sewn onto the neckline of a plain tee, or you could scale it down and stitch it onto the collar of a crisp white shirt. Match the thread colour to your accessories for a pulled-together look!
