Story of the Manhattan Bridge design
Embroidery Pattern Manhattan Bridge New York fits in a hoop of 20cm (6″) diameter hoop. It is the perfect design for you who love architecture and graphical art.
Thanks to this design, you will become a master at stitching straight and neat lines with the back stitch technique. The back stitch is ideal for contour work as the stitches align perfectly after each other.
Furthermore, by reducing the number of strands to only one single strand, you immediately enhance the modern look. Simply by reducing the thickness of your thread, your embroidery work will look more advanced.
