Embroidery Stitches, some with instructions + Patterns
I would love to say everyone of my pins has instructions included if you click on the picture, but not all do.
Stumpwork pansy, a tutorial~ Of course there will be some stumpwork pansies on my crazy violets quilt. I will show you how I create one. First I drew the 5 petals of a pansy on muslin. I don't think the wire is the "right" wire, but it is thin enough and it works for me. ~By Marjolein, Threads and Patches
Embroidered carnations in silk by Margaret Cobleigh~ Thanks to Margaret Cobleigh for her genius in converting this image of carnations into a design for hand embroidery. The image is taken from A Treatise on Embroidery with Twenty Color Illustrations from Original Models. Art Needlework Series No. 8 by M. Heminway & Sons Silk Company .
I ❤ beaded embroidery . . . Beaded Pistol Stitch Tutorial~ Coming up with all of the various stitch combinations is quite a challenge to my creativity as I try not to use the same beads & the same stitch. A change in the bead size shape & color can go a long way in making each stitch look different. ~By Amy Munson, In The Fold
Embroidery Stitch Video Tutorial: Whipped Running Stitch~ Another hand embroidery stitch that’s great for beginning embroidery – the whipped running stitch. It’s a simple, quick stitch to work. This stitch is one of many line stitches that can be used for bold or delicate outlines, depending on your choice of thread.
Embroidery Stitch Video Tutorial: The Running Stitch & Finishing Threads. Running Stitch is the most basic hand embroidery stitch. It is simply an “up and down” stitch in the fabric. Although it may seem like such a basic hand embroidery stitch that it could be considered dull, on the contrary, running stitch can be used quite effectively in all levels of hand embroidery.
I ❤ embroidery . . . The Lazy Daisy is a looped stitch, like a free floating chain stitch. It can be worked in rows or used randomly. Bring the thread up through the fabric. Hold it down with your thumb & insert the needle again at the starting point. Bring it out a short distance away, making sure the needle comes over the thread. Now take a small stitch at the top of the loop.
I ❤ beading & machine embroidery . . . Chaos of Creation~ From the Rocks & Water Gallery. Size in inches: 5¾ x 18¼ Mounted size: 9 x 22 inches. In the private collection of George Wilson & Claire McClenny. ~By Larkin Jean Van Horn Techniques used: machine stitching, hand beading Materials: hand-dyed cotton and silk organza; stone donut cabochon; glass seed and bugle beads; pressed glass beads
I ❤ embroidery . . . Working in exactly the same movement as the first layer of stitches, skip one point of the star, & take your needle down on the far side of the next point of the star, as shown in the photo above. Remember to use the lines of the previous layer of stitches as your guide, & go down just on the other side of that stitch line. You can angle your needle a little bit so that you’re passing into the fabric right under that stitch.
I ❤ embroidery . . . Sorbello stitch-This stitch looks like series of crosses or Xs with a knot in between each X. Once you learn this stitch, you can experiment widely with this stitch by making various geometrical patterns like circles. You will then see how the same stitch could look differently wtih each pattern. ~By Sarah,
