Embroidered Initial Necklace Tutorial

My girls have been eyeing the necklaces that I’ve been selling in my shop, so I decided to make one for each of them.  I’ve wanted to try making an embroidered initial necklace, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  Miss Leah got an L for her name, and Audrey got an A, of course.  I created a whole embroidery alphabet pattern that you can download for free.

I wrote up an entire tutorial and filmed a little video that will show you how to assemble the necklaces.  Find that on the post about my embroidery pendants and how to put embroidery in a necklace.  You might also find it helpful to watch my video on how to embroider letters by hand.  It explains, in detail, how to stem stitch letter like this.

Hi, Just wanted to let you know that the link to your shop in the supplies list for the pendant necklace doesn't work. Thanks for the tutorial. It's exactly what I was looking for!
