Stitch of the Week 21: Butterfly Chain Stitch

Take a Stitch on Tuesday, May 28, 2013   Welcome to week 21!

This week’s stitch is Butterfly Chain stitch. Here is the SharonB’s Stitch Dictionary pages with instructions on how to do it.

There are no variations from this stitch, but it is based on some variations in the Chain Stitch family.  Once we reach this generation of the Chain stitch variants, I can see the progression to create this stitch, but it doesn’t resemble its family members much any more!

Please follow her procedure and put a link to your published Butterfly Chain Stitch and their variations pictures in the comments of the latest TAST post here. Just click the post title, and scroll down to the comment section!

Please post the link to your Butterfly Chain Stitch photos in THIS comment section if you also wish to share it here.

Happy Stitching!

Stitch of the Week 20: Bullion Stitch

Take a Stitch on Tuesday, May 21, 2013   Welcome to week 20!

This week’s stitch is Bullion stitch. Here is the SharonB’s Stitch Dictionary pages with instructions on how to do it.

Can I just insert here, how much this stitch intimidates me? I keep reminding myself that the first time I tried it, from written instructions alone, it was with rayon thread in a Brazillian embroidery kit. Disaster! But I am now determined to master it! In cotton, with lots of experts on hand :)

Here’s what SharonB wrote for TAST 2012 Week 20: Bullion Stitch. You can read her instructions and see inspiring examples there.

Stitch of the Week 15: Stem Stitch

Take a Stitch on Tuesday, April 16, 2013   Welcome to week 15! (Sort of… remember we are using week numbers to match the original 2012 TAST, and they’ve taken a week off. This is STITCH # 14)

This week’s stitch is Stem stitch. Here is the SharonB’s Stitch Dictionary pages with instructions on how to do it.

There is only one Stem Stitch variation, but we won’t see Outline Stitch in this TAST Challenge. I think it is a good week to once and for all figure out the difference, and SEE the difference between stem and outline! It all has to do with the twist of the thread. Try them both and see for yourself. Maybe its just me that can’t ever remember the names right ;)
