Below are the five stitches, click on the heading to learn them and see the old posts.
51 Tent Stitch
An old stitch most suitable for canvas.
A smart way to use expensive thread economically and beautifully.
53 Sword Edging Stitch
Oh, so easy, and with great potential!
I learned from blog readers that this technique was used to mark the design instead of painting the canvas or referring to a chart.
It also gives a very nice raised look to ordinary Cross Stitch and Half Stitch.
55 Tailor's Buttonhole Stitch
This is were I learned the most during these last five stitches. SO many variations and SO enjoyable to watch professionals at work. Check out the videos!
As usual the task is to make use of the five stitches on a Sunbonnet Sue design.
Crayon, rubber pad and stranded floss must be included
