Sunday Stitch School - Revision: Stitches 51 - 55

Welcome to another revision lesson at Sunday Stitch School.

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!

54 Tramming
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

As always, a nice review. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Sue will be busy with things you do before and after Easter, especially if you have had visitors.

Rachel said...

I'm much looking forward to seeing Sue with all her variations!

Queeniepatch said...

Designing Sue and dressing her in the various stitches is great fun.

I like the Underside Couched leaf. I'm guessing the crayon and pad are for fabric designing. New idea to me, if so.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, I will colour part of Sue's outfit with crayon, set it with a hot iron and then leet the stitches do their work.

Annet said...

I'm looking forward to see how you combine these stitches.

Janie said...

You've introduced the players! The design adventure begins.
This should be good.

Queeniepatch said...

It WILL be a challenge this time! That is why the crayon had to come out!

Queeniepatch said...

'This should be good', hm, I hope so, I am sure this will be difficult!
