How Do You Hand Stitch a Name on Fabric?

Hand stitching a name on fabric can be a simple yet effective way to personalize any sewing project. To get started, choose the fabric and the desired embroidery floss color. Draw the name you want to stitch onto the fabric using a pencil or fabric marking pen.

Thread the embroidery needle with the embroidery thread, tie a knot at the end of the floss, and then begin stitching using a simple backstitch. Keep the stitches even and consistent for a neat appearance.

Once finished stitching the name, tie off the embroidery floss with a knot on the back of the fabric. If desired, glue the fabric to a larger project with fabric-tac glue for a seamless look. By following these steps, you can add a unique touch to any sewing project.
