Satin Stitch

Wow, three posts in one week. Who would have thought, I must be feeling inspired. Anyway, this one is about Satin stitch.   Now this stitch, I think is easy to do in theory. Just placing one stitch next to the other on an angle, very closely.  The thing is, it is very tricky to get your tension even.  So, for this post I have done pretty well, but could definately do much much better.



First, I drew a little leaf shape.  Of course, on your own work, please don't copy me and use pen.  It was the only thing I had on hand at the time. A HB pencil, pressing lightly, is the best.






Continue placing your stitches close together and on an angle until you have completely filled in your stitch.

  1. This is a pretty stitch....I can see how the tension would be tricky. Looks great though.
