Sunday Stitch School - Revision: Stitches 71 - 75

Let's review the last five stitches:
Click on the headline and see previous blog posts of the instructions, inspiration and homework.

71 Twisted Fly Stitch
This makes such a great base for floral designs - almost any detached stitch can be placed in the 'cup' and blossom into a flower.


72 Sham Hem Stitch
As only the first part of this stitch, the VVVVVVVVVV-line, goes through the fabric, and the second part, the lacing, just goes over and under the thread of the line of VVVVs, you can work this on thick fabric without adding a lot of bulk.


73 God's Eye Stitch
Oh, it was interesting to read about the ornament God's Eye that so many readers have made with sticks and wool, and compare it with the embroidery stitch.


74 Boucle Stitch
Here is a stitch that goes through the fabric many times! Used on canvas it makes a nice solid filling stitch. It would be suitable for upholstery.


75 Maidenhair Stitch
This is a charming version of the Feather Stitch.

Homework:
Make another Sunbonnet Sue using the five stitches.

The "God's Eye" stitch is very reminiscent of a type of corn dolly, as well...

Sue will soon make another appearance!
I'm looking forward to the story that will explain what she's up to
this time!

Nice review. I wonder what Sue will be doing this time.

I had fun with these stitches but the Boucle stitch I found a bit awkward. I'll have to take time to try it on different fabrics and threads.
I'm another waiting to see how Sue is dressed- she is always classy.

I'm sure Sue will look pretty in these stitches!

I like to think of the possibilities of the maidenhair stitch. Hope to view Sue before too long.

I like the twisted fly stitch, I'll try and remember to use it sometime.
