Stitch lexicon round 14
The next round of embroidery stitch tutorials is out in the stitch lexicon. This time it’s the following embroidery stitches:
Running stitch is the most basic stitch around the embroidery stitches. It may have the reputation to being dull and flat, but have a look at this: It’s amazing how the texture changes if you whip the running stitch. The flat one is seed stitch, the raised one is whipped running stitch. I think this picture reflects very well how small alterations of a stitch can change the whole thing.
I used this same effect in my geometric animals series, which is made entirely of running and whipped running stitch. You can check them out here.
And here is what the 3 triangles for round 14 look like! If you would like to practice these stitches, too, come participate in the triangle sampler project over at Patreon! Every other week there is a new set of 3 triangles which we stitch together and share.
