This is the top section of my new sampler band. There is an example of free form feathered chain stitch. The lavander dots are tiny woven wheels. They are done without padding, do you know the trick to make them stand up like that? Or should I make them a stitch sunday stitch one day?
And it is sunday again. If you want to join me in my stitching adventures, post a link to your sample of this stitch in a comment.
Feathered chain stitch has been part of Sharon Bogon’s TAST challenge, but in a very different version. Today I show the other version, done my way. I have used this stitch a lot to represent real plants rather than as a formal border.
Here is a step by step. I did it without drawing lines, so that an organic shape can form. I’m not sure how to put the process in words without sounding stupid, so I just let the pics speak this time.
Now here is the fourth posting about my current sampler, which is the fifth one I started. Here you can read a bit about my sampler project. By clicking here or on the sampler5 tag on any post belonging to it, you can see all the posts about this sampler. In this piece, I show flowers made from detatched chain variations. Especially whipped long tail chain and beaded long tail chain which were TAST stitches. The lines below the flowers are variants of feathered chain stitches, they are either used to couch another thread or whipped.
