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 . . Video Tutorial for Bullion Knots! The bullion knot – sometimes, the name strikes fear in the embroiderer’s heart! But it shouldn’t be so. With a little practice, bullion knots are actually pretty easy. There are a few tricks to making them even easier for you, so I’ll talk about those tricks below, and in the video, I’ll show you how I make bullions. It’s a little different from the way you’ll see them diagrammed in books, but I think it’s a lot easier.

I ❤ embroidery . . . Fishbone Stitch Video Tutorial~ The fishbone stitch is an easy hand embroidery stitch that works great for creating filled leaves and petal shapes. You can use the stitch for other applications, too, but the fishbone stitch is most often seen as a filling for leaves. This is because it creates a satin-stitch-like filling, with a natural spine down the center. The thread used for that leaf is cotton floche, a wonderfully soft hand embroidery thread.

I ❤ embroidery . . . Buttonhole Wheel or Circle~ You can work buttonhole wheels with radiating spokes from a center point. You can also work the buttonhole wheel around a center dot, to create a flower or other similar element. The trickiest part of working a buttonhole wheel is keeping the stitches from closing up on you as go around the circle.

    The trick to avoiding this is to always pull your working thread in the direction that you’re moving around the wheel. You want to keep a fairly tight tension on the working thread, but not so tight that the stitch buckles. This is demonstrated in the video.

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.

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.
