TAST Button Hole Stitch

We are in week two and soon will be in week three of  TAST.  I joined this challenge because I want to learn embroidery stitches.  I was doing the stitches on a scrap piece of fabric but was encouraged to create something with them by another person in the challenge.  I decided to make a small heart from a scrap quilted pillow case.  The fly stitch was week one and I did it on the seam of the quilted piece.

 

I used waste canvas which was pretty cool to use.  I always wondered how they got the stitches so uniform.  It is always about the tools!

This week we did the buttonhole stitch.  I did the buttonhole stitch around the yo yo flowers in yellow.


It is more fun to be creating something than to just try the stitches! Check out the other stitchers on the TAST Flickr site!

  2. That is fabulous!! I think you're going to be really happy that you chose to make something specific rather than just do samples...it becomes exciting as your piece "grows"!
