Friday Homework for Lesson 27: Buttonholed Buttonhole Stitch

I'm here at the evening class at Sunday Stitch School to hand in my homework.

The task was easy - a row of Buttonholed Buttonhole Stitches on my Aida sampler.

To show off the Buttonholed legs I made them longer than the bare legs.

It's been a week packed with other things than sewing. I hope to have more time for my studies soon.

Very nice! I like the height difference.

This is only ONE version of the basic stitch. Go over to Chitras blog and see a fantastic collection: https://jizee6687.wordpress.com/2017/07/07/sss-27-buttonholed-buttonhole-stitch/

It's very pleasing in pink, could you imagine layering rows of different color?
I'll look at Chitras' work too.

this is a very effective stitch Queenie off to see what Chitra has done, I am sure I follow her but never get notification of when she adds to her blog these days

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, I think this will look great 'rows piled on top of each other' or worked in a variegated thread.

Queeniepatch said...

Well Chitra is using another blog platform and the notification might change for us who use Blogger.

Hi I am referring to you Sunday posts to get stitching ideas for my knitted blanket; I am embroidering around each block. Thanks!
I recently walking foot stitched a runner and was most happy with the result.

Queeniepatch said...

Oh, I am pleased to hear you find some useful stitches.
I hadn't used a walking foot for ages and had forgotten just how easy it is to make nice lines.

Rachel said...

It creates and interesting variety of textures, doesn't it!

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, it has both the plain Buttonhole legs and these rich bulky ones, so lots of texture.
