Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 81: Reversed Fly Stitch

Good afternoon, class.

It is time for a stitch found in Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches, in the Isolated Stitches section.

Let's learn and play with Reversed Fly Stitch.
Updated: Mattia tells me there are two French names - Point de Blume Inversé or Point de Mouche Inversé.

It's easy to learn - just make a Fly Stitch, and on top of that a mirrored Fly Stitch.

You can play around with the length and width of the stitches, make a smaller stitch op top of a larger one, and so on.

Homework: Play!

  1. I'll be interested to see you find a use for this one. It's quite geometric, sin't it...

  2. Le point de cette semaine s'appelle en français :
    - Point de plume inversé ou point de mouche inversé

  3. Interesting stitch! I use the fly stitch often enough but haven't tried this before.

  4. It has been a while since I did Reversed fly. It was fun and quick to do. I like how you the tumbled the Corded Bars.

  5. Interesting results. I expect we will see this again down the road.
