Bingo! A reply! Alhamdulillah...
I don't know how much you know of embroidery stitches, but I use two basic ones for outlining designs:
The chain stitch: put your needle through the fabric and bring it up a stitch length (about this much _ ), loop the thread around the needle (you can do this from the right to left, or left to right, but once you choose one stick to it), pull the needle up and tighten in the direction of your stitching. For the next stitch put your needle through the first one, bring it up a stitch length and do the same.
I'm not very good at explaining on paper so I've added the link where you can find a video tutorial:http://www.needlenthread.com/2006/10/embroidery-stitch-video-tutorial-chain.html
I haven't really needed to use the stem stitch, but my mum uses it for really intricate designs, there is an explanation here: http://www.needlenthread.com/2006/06/basic-embroidery-stitches-line.html
It really depends on how experienced you are with a needle and thread, try out the chain stitch if you haven't done so before and I can help you out if you have any problems. It's really easy once you get the hang of it.
Sorry my explanations aren't very clear and if I come across patronising
, I'm better at demonstrations!
