Leaf Embroidery - Day 5 - Herringbone stitch leaf

 Hi all

Welcome to Day 5 of our Leaf Embroidery series! Today, we're diving into the Herringbone stitch, a versatile and decorative stitch that adds texture and dimension to your leaf embroidery projects. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced embroiderer, the Herringbone stitch is a fantastic addition to your stitching repertoire.

The Herringbone stitch, also known as the plaited stitch, is characterized by its unique interlaced pattern. It creates a series of diagonal lines that intersect, forming a herringbone-like pattern. This stitch is not only aesthetically pleasing but also adds a lovely texture to your embroidery.

Tips for Perfecting Your Herringbone Stitch

  • Practice on Scrap Fabric: If you're new to the Herringbone stitch, practice on a piece of scrap fabric before working on your final piece.
  • Maintain Tension: Keep your stitches snug but not too tight to avoid puckering the fabric.
  • Experiment with Floss Colors: Try using different shades of green or even variegated floss to add depth and interest to your leaf.

The Herringbone stitch is a beautiful way to add texture and interest to your leaf embroidery. Its crisscrossing pattern mimics the natural veins of a leaf, making it an ideal choice for a project. Remember, practice makes perfect, so don't be discouraged if your first few attempts aren't flawless. With time and patience, you'll master this stitch and create stunning leaf embroidery pieces.

Happy Embroidering.

Feel free to share your progress and finished pieces with us. I love seeing your creations and the unique twists you bring to each project. Stay tuned for more embroidery tutorials and tips in my Leaf Embroidery series!

Buttonhole Bar stitch tutorial

 Hi all

Today I am happy to share with you the stitch tutorial for "buttonhole bar". 


Let's move on to the tutorial

1)  First make 2-3 straight stitches as a foundation for this stitch.  I have made 3 here and the stitches are 2 cm long.

2)  Bring the needle up at one end and without picking the fabric pass the needle below the foundation stitches and make a blanket stitch.  We can make blanket stitches above/below.

3)One blanket stitch is made.

4) Continue doing blanket stitches till you cover the foundation stitches. The picture below shows the stitch halfway through.

5)  Anchor the last stitch at the end of the foundation stitches.  

6)  Buttonhole bar stitch is made.  It looks like cast on stitch.  Here I have made 3 buttonhole bar stitches. 

You can view the video tutorial here.

Hope you find this tutorial useful.  

Have great day.  Happy embroidering.
