Posted on 7th April 2018
For this tutorial, you will need an image to use as “Background”, and some “Felt” Textures and “Stitch” Brushes you can find online.

1 - In Photoshop, open the image you chose as “Background”.

2 - Create “New Layer” by clicking on the button at the bottom of the “Layers” Panel, name it “Felt”. Open the “Felt” Textures you want to use and “Paste” them (Command/Control + V) into your Layer. Use “Free Transform” (Command/Control +T) if you need to resize it.

3 - Turn of your Layers by clicking on the small eye icon to the left of their thumbnails. Select the “Ellipse Tool” (U), choose “Path” in the upper left menu and while holding the “Shift” key draw a circle in the lower portion of your document.

4 - Then, select the “Direct Selection Tool” (A), click on the top “Anchor Pont” and move upwards until you have an egg-like shape. You will get a Pop-up window about turning your Shape into a Path, click “OK”. Pull the left and right “Handles” a bit to each side to make the top less pointy and in the “Paths” Panel select you “Work Path”, double-click on its thumbnail and name it “Egg”.

5 - Make a Selection by clicking on the small button at the bottom of the “Paths” Panel and then go back to the “Layers” Panel. Make sure your “Felt” Layer is selected and click on the “Add Layer Mask” button at the bottom of the Panel.

6 - Double-click on your “Egg” and apply the following “Layer Styles”:

Bevel & Emboss: (Gloss Contour: Cone)


Inner Shadow:

7 - Create “New Layer” on top of everything and name it “Stitches”. Select the “Brush Tool” (B), open the “Brush Preset Picker” Panel and click on the little Gear icon on the top-right corner. From the Menu, select “Load Brushes…”, navigate to the place you saved your “Stitch” Brushes and Open them. They should now be at the bottom.

8 - Select the brush you want to use, make sure the size is right, that your “Foreground” color is white and that you selected the “Stitches” Layer.

9 - Select the “Pen Tool” (P) and draw a Path inside the “Egg” shape. In the “Paths” Panel select your “Work Path” thumbnail and click the small rounded button at the bottom to “Stroke Path with Brush”.

10 - You can use the “Custom Shape Tool” (U) or the “Freeform Pen Tool” (P) to add more Paths and Stroke them.

11 - Once you are happy, double-click on the “Stitches” Layer thumbnail and apply the following “Layer Styles”:

Bevel & Emboss: (Gloss Contour: Rounded Steps)

Inner Shadow:

Gradient Overlay: (From #c9c8c8 to #ffffff)
