Friday Homework for Lesson 29: Madam Totsuka's Loop Stitch

Here is my homework for Sunday Stitch School's Lesson 29.

A line of Madam Totsuka's Loop Stitch on my Aida sampler:

This stitch needs to be anchored properly and to be able to do so on Aida, you need to work in the woven areas between the holes...



Freeform embroidery:
I made a small floral display. The stitch works nicely in a circle for flowers and if the loops are large enough they could go for leaves. With small loops they make a very knobby stem.
I will definitely use this stitch for embellishing seams on crazy quilting.

The stitch works well on your freeform embroidery

What a great idea!

You are right, it does!

It's a fun stitch, but has a life of its own. Free form might be best.

liking what you have done here with your loop stitch gives a 3D look to the work

Rachel said...

Yes, it creates a fantastic effect!

Love the look of the card motif. How well this would go in sumptuous surface work. It's a joy to see how you make something very different with your stitches.

Queeniepatch said...

It is a stitch with a lot of personality and attitude, not easy to control.

Queeniepatch said...

As it can be made with short or long loops, with short or long base stitches, it can look very different. Great for plants or sea weed, or maybe hair.

Queeniepatch said...

You are right, it would go well on a 'pile em on' embroidery, or maybe even a stump work one!

Wow, this stitch is great for flowers!
