Schoolhouse Sampler in Surface Embroidery Stitches

The Finished Schoolhouse Sampler Project

Looking for a perfect Back-To-School project? You can stitch this easy Schoolhouse Sampler using simple, basic hand embroidery stitches including back stitch, French knots and lazy daisy surface embroidery stitches.

After the stitching has been completed, enhance the Schoolhouse Sampler project with PrimsaColor artists' pencils. These wax-based pencils are perfect for adding a touch of color to embroidery projects that will not be laundered. This step is optional, but really makes the finished project stand out.

The project is sized to fit a standard 8.5 x 11 inch document frame, and would be wonderful to display during the back to school season. The framed project would also make a welcome gift for a teacher.

The materials list and pattern can be found in the next two steps.
