We love seeing how other artists and designers use embroidery to embellish their daily lives. Here's a round up of some inspirational favorites found on Instagram and beyond.
The french knot is a wonderfully versatile, decorative embroidery stitch. It involves making stitches in the form of small knotted dots, which can be used as a filler, pattern, or as the center of flowers.
Satin stitch is one of the most common filler stitches. It’s used to fill in any shape with an area of flat, smooth and closely spaced stitches. Each stitch lays parallel to the last, extending across the entire length or width of the shape.
The split stitch is a basic embroidery stitch that can be used to outline an image, or can be used as a filler if you put the lines closer to each other. To create this thicker line of stitching, stab the previous stitch from below to create a continuous line.
Whipped running stitches are perfect for linear elements that are more decorative than stitches with single lines. The running stitch acts as a foundation for the whip stitch, so it seems somewhat raised with a twisted appearance that can be accentuated by using two different colors of thread.
The running stitch is one of the most common stitches used in hand sewing, mending, and embroidery. It involves creating a series of evenly spaced, straight stitches on fabric, and the end result looks like a continuous line composed of little dashes.

The chain stitch is one of the basic embroidery stitches that is useful for making a continuous line that appears to be made with conjoined loops, like a chain. When you make multiple lines of chain stitches next to one another it also makes a good filler stitch–a stitch that can fill a larger area of a design rather than an outline.
