TAST #91 - Straight Sided Feather Stitch

This time Sharon of Pintangle, who is giving us these wonderful TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) stitches, handed out three stitches at the same time but I will work and post one at a time.

Here is TAST #91 which is called Straight Sided Feather Stitch. Actually it gives the basic Feather stitch a more geometric and stiff look.

I made two lines, one wider, one a bit more narrow.
Although this is a simple stitch I think the possibilities are endless, e.g. two rows in mirror image, extremely long or short stitches, or a combination.

I can tell you already now that the next stitch is combination stitch. How I will work it you'll see next week!

    1. This is one of the easiest stitches to work, yet it has many faces.

  3. What a difference the size of the stitch makes! The wider row gives much more space to tuck in another stitch or a bead.
