TDiTM Stitch #91


Reference: Twelve Dozen Stitches in Twelve Months

As you see by these rickrack sample seams…I’m tired of stitching on white fabric with black lines!

So, my model piece is now a long strip pieced multi colored fabric. I took 5 inch pieces of scrap fabric, cut them in half…and strip pieced them to a long piece of muslin about 6 x 24. The seams have been covered with large white rick rack to allow for these seams.

This little stitch is cute. The yellow is double thread because it is a smaller weight (perle size 12) than the red (perle size 8) so I thought it needed more weight to balance it out. The French knots would be great if changed to seed beads!
