Sunday Stitch School - Revision: Stitches 26 - 30

Since the start, in November last year, we have put 30 stitches under our belt here at Sunday Stitch School.
Let's review the last five ones.

Click on the headline to learn each stitch and read more about it.

26 Zig-zag Stitch
This is an easy stitch with interesting results.
Do check out the beautiful patterns that Annet has made.

27 Buttonholed Buttonhole Stitch
This is also an easy stitch and can be varied in many ways. Have a look at what Chitra made.

 28 Half Bullioned Chain Stitch
Bullion knots are not very liked, I have noticed. I must confess I am not a great fan of them either, but I think that when successfully made, they are very attractive. This version is fun.

29 Madam Totsuka's Loop Stitch
This turned out to be a new stitch to all except one reader. I found it easy to make and difficult to curb. That means it is perfect for wild life embroidery, flowers, plants, hair and fur!

30 Holbein Stitch
Although this is a very basic and simple stitch, it can be hard to make really even. As Rachel, who makes beautiful work, pointed out, it is these simple stitches that need to be practiced, as mistakes show up easily.

Now for some revision homework:
Make a seasonal Sunbonnet Sue and use mainly the five stitches above.


  1. Thanks for the link to my zigzag stitches! I'm looking forward to see Sue with these stitches.

    1. I really wanted everyone to see your take on the Zig-zag stitch.
      Sue is getting a body outline right now, of course in Holbein Stitch.

  2. The challenge is on, Queenie puts on her design hat and the fun begins!

    1. Yes, the CHALLENGE of picking a good stitch for the different parts of Sue is fun. Any lines will be with Holbein Stitch, that's for sure.

  3. I look forward to seeing Sue!
