Stitch Lexicon Round 19

lexicon of embroidery stitches - round 19

Let’s look at the new stitches in the lexicon! We are now in round 19 – making it 173 stitch tutorials in the lexicon. All 5 are quite uncommon, so get your fabric out and give them a try 🙂

I have written about Otomi before. It is basically a herringbone stitch worked very closely to cover all of the underlying fabric. Otomi is a very thread-saving stitch! Most of the thread is used in the front while in the back you will only see lines of tiny tiny dots. It takes a bit of practice to get used to this stitch, but when you get in full swing it’s so fast!

These stitches made it into this round
