Thread Painting Tutorials

Posted by Linda Matthews on January 1, 2011

I posted a thread painting video the other day and I have since found some really good tutorials and instruction for thread painting. I like to do thread painting, although only small pieces at a time, but it gives you the freedom to create designs without the need for an embroidery machine which for a lot of people is an unnecessary expense (although way too much fun).

First head over to HGTV where you’ll find a really nice step-by-step tutorial with photos that explains the technique quite well.

Fembellish, as always, has a lovely tutorial, and then StarThreads has a bunch of nice projects by Terry White which can be found here – scroll down the page for the “Sunny Beach Bag”, “Tree of Life” and “Loose Leaf Notebook” projects. Each of these projects feature thread painting designs.

And of course Nancy Prince has lots of information about thread painting on her website here.

If you haven’t tried thread painting before, I’m sure you’ll be hooked if you give it a try.
