Embroider a chunky nose: Step-by-Step Guide

1. Plan Your Nose Placement

Before diving into the embroidery process, take a moment to plan the ideal placement for your chunky nose. Mark the spot with a removable stitch marker or use pins, providing guidance as you bring your creation to life.


2. Thread Your Yarn Needle

Cut a generous length of the chunky yarn, ensuring it's sufficient to complete the entire nose embroidery. Thread the yarn through the needle, leaving a tail for securing the yarn at the beginning of your stitching adventure.


3. Secure the Yarn

With your needle threaded, insert it at the marked spot, pulling the yarn through until the tail is snug against the amigurumi or plush toy. This initial step secures the yarn in place, ready for the nose to take shape.


4. Create the First Stitch

Form the first stitch by bringing the needle back through the same spot, establishing the foundation for your chunky nose. Adjust the tightness to control the size and shape, setting the tone for the personality you want to convey.


5. Continue with Simple Stitches

As you build the nose, add simple stitches, depending on your envisioned shape. Keep the stitches close together for that appealing chunky appearance.


6. Add Dimension

For an extra layer of dimension, consider stacking additional stitches on top of each other in the center of the nose. This technique enhances the chunky texture, making your creation stand out.


7. Secure the Yarn at the End

Once satisfied with the nose's shape, secure the yarn by weaving the needle through the back of the stitches.
