Whenever I come across the tutorials or pictures based on couching I would think that we should give try, becoz it seems to be a simple technique but produces beautiful effects on lines and curves. But only after sharon gave this stitch as this weeks challenge it came into reality. For my trial I have drawn a simple curve free form. But after finish drawing I have seen the curve is in the shape of letter S. That is the beginnig letter of my name. So I thought I will stitch this turn that cloth into a simple coaster. Here goes my trial.
I have used 6 strands for both the laid thread and the fastening thread. Happy to see the outcome.
I have added five straight lines and those lines were also couched. Here comes the coaster.
Now Couching in round
I have learned the couching technique from www.stitchschool.com
