TAST 2012 - Week 41, Italian Knotted Border Stitch

This is my small sample for this week's challenge. I have tried this flower to practice honey comb filling.  Outerportion of the big flower and the small flower are done using Italian knotted border stitch.  Center portion of the big flower is honey comb filling stitch.  Pink part is button hole stitch.

Italian knotted border stitch is best suitable for making tiny flowers and star shaped flowers. Initially I had some trouble in making the knot.  But after making 4 to 5 stitches It was very easy and quick to make. One more stitch to my stitch list. Thanks to sharon.  For the Italian knotted border stitch tutorial is here.

 Happy Embroidering.

  1. The Italian Border stitch makes this a very 'happy and sunny' flower. Well done!

  2. wonderful. great idea to use this stitch as flower outline.

  3. The honeycomb filling came out good, Shami. I've never done it before. Maybe Sharon will have on the TAST one day. :):)


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
