Use the buttonhole or satin stitch to embroider the piece tucking the cut-out piece underneath. Some people do all the needle work first and when finished do the cutwork, which should be immensely precise or you may cut into the stitched part and ruin the work. However, I find the tucking method much safer and the look neater.

    It was so pleasant seeing embroidery techniques here at Burdastyle. I usually cut the fabric, after i’ve embroidered all the pattern, to avoid fraying and I use another kind of stich, I’ll be back to write you the english name of it.
