Some more Buttonhole Stitch and Feather Stitch

Oh my, it’s only the 4th week of TAST and I’m already behind. Well, here is some more buttonhole stitch, and my efforts on feather stitch.

Also, those are almost the last sections of my band sampler. I only have a little space left to add a date.



The heart is detatched buttonhole filling.



Buttonhole Stitch 2

Here are this weekend’s effords on TAST stitch buttonhole stitch.

First the whole sampler. I know, not much progress for a whole weekend. The red batch with my initials is going to be handmade cut work. Which is time consuming to do, and I’m not as good at it as I would like to be.

The next picture shows the group of flowers, with many ways of doing leaves in buttonhole stitch.

The next one shows one more way to do leaves, which I got from let’s learn embroidery.

the soil section has buttonhole bars, buttonhole weels and areas of detatched buttonhole filling.

TAST2 buttonhole stitch

This is another posting about take a stitch tuesday. Buttonhole stitch is an old favourite, so it wasn’t difficult. I just didn’t have much time for it after fiddling with the herring bone stitch so long, so i only have a few fragments.

This is a border design. Two rows of buttonhole stitch were laced with knitting yarn in herringbone fashion, then the knitting yarn was tied down with a small row of herringbone in silver thread.

flowers and leaves made of buttonhole stitch

This one shows different leaves and flowers. The most left leaf is padded buttonhole, that means under the buttonhole stitches there are multible layers of satin stitches. The small upper leaf at the left flower is made of buttonhole stitches pointing in alternating directions. This is often counted as a separate stitch, called fishbone stitch. The other leaves are just different arrangements of plain buttonhole stitch.

Doing buttonholes on the green jute scrim band was a challenge because buttonhole stitches pull the loose material too much. It only worked because the buttonhole wheels on this only worked because they are padded either.
