Sunday Stitch School - Revision: Stitches 181 - 185

Are you ready to look at the last five stitches one more time?

Click on the title for each stitch to link to the instructions.

181 Woven Stitch

This canvas stitch is easy and fast, and it really does give the impression that the threads have been woven.

182 Snail Trail Stitch

If you have done the Coral Stitch, you can easily do the Snail Trail. Just take a bigger bite of fabric, and at an angle.

This is an impressive stitch. It looks complicated, and the grid in the instructions may make you shun away. Don't. Once you have marked out the shape and got started, it is easy and fun, trust me!

184 Herringbone Ladder Stitch
You need two threads for this stitch. It also gives you the chance of using one of the difficult threads for the lacing part. First make the staggered Back Stitch foundation, then start lacing.

185 Otomi Stitch

This Mexican version of our good old friend Herringbone Stitch is not hard, you just needs some time and patience to cover the foundation fabric. It is an economical stitch that uses only minimum thread on the back.


Use these stitches for a Sunbonnet Sue portrait - yes, make a portrait this time, not another hat!


  1. I am not a good guesser so I will just have to wait until you post the new Sue.

  2. This was a great set of stitches to do. Now looking forward to seeing a portrait of Sue.

  3. I always look forward to seeing how you use these stitches!

  4. I'm looking forward to see how to match these pretty stitches!

  5. Great stitches and samples, and this new Sunbonnet Sue vignette should be a good one!
