To make this, all I did was use a pencil to write "always" in cursive on my fabric, then added a few little hearts for good measure. Then I...embroidered it. (Amazing, I know. I told you I wasn't a pro!)
If you're not comfortable doing it freehand, you can always find a font you like, type up your design in Word, flip it so you have a mirror image, print it out, then transfer your pattern to your fabric. I'm not that patient, though. ;)
If you have NO idea where to start in the word of embroidery, Jenna has a vlog about beginning embroidery on her blog, as well as a tutorial about how to transfer a pattern. Lots of great information to be found in both posts!
I love how my little project turned out, and now my kids are obsessed with embroidery! I think it's a good project for kids, though. It doesn't cost much, and it increases eye-hand coordination and focus.
