I ❤ embroidery . . . Tutorial~ Whipped back stitch creates a slightly raised line which is simple, quick & easy to work. Work a foundation row of back stitches. Make each stitch slightly longer & looser than usual. Next whip the row. You do this by bringing the needle up from the foundation fabric, take the thread over the top & pass the needle under the first back stitch. Do not pick up any of the fabric as you whip.

You can embroider without scissors. You can embroider without a hoop. But one thing you can’t embroider without is a needle. The needle is the Most Important Embroidery Tool for the stitcher. It is the one tool a stitcher cannot do without. Because needles are essential to embroidery, if you’re interested in embroidery, the subject of needles is worth exploring.

I ❤ embroidery . . . Daisy Stitch Video Tutorial~ The detached chain stitch, also known as the “lazy daisy” or just “daisy” stitch, is an isolated stitch – that is, it stands on its own as a stitch, without being connected to another stitch. The detached chain stitch is a very popular embroidery stitch, because it’s an easy & pretty stitch. It’s perfect for flowers, petals, & leaves, but can be used in lots of different ways.

I ❤ embroidery . . . Raised Fishbone Stitch Video Tutorial~ Incidentally, the different between the fishbone stitch & the raised fishbone stitch is more than just the fact that the raised version sits higher on the fabric. It’s also created a little differently – it is stitched practically backwards, when compared to the movement of the regular fishbone stitch.

I ❤ embroidery . . . Fly Stitch Leaves~ The advantage of embroidering leaves using fly stitch is that you can very easily change the look or shape of the leaf simply by altering the way you begin the leaf or where you start & end the fly stitches. You can also vary the size of leaves by embroidery more or few fly stitches. If you’re not familiar with fly stitch, feel free to take a look at my fly stitch video tutorial.

I ❤ embroidery . . . Rose Leaf Stitch~ There are a couple “tools” that will help make this stitch easier. The first one is a strip of card stock about an inch wide & a couple inches long. Since one of my handy helpers in my workroom is my stack of 3×5″ index cards, I just used one of those. I cut out four of the line areas, which gave me a 1″ wide piece of card.
