Stem Stitch - Whipped

I brought you the stem stitch details as one of my very first blog posts, as it is one of the most used embroidery stitches.

The whipped stitch can be done in the same colour or a contrasting colour depending on the look you are trying to get.

Just thread your top stitch over and under each one of the stem stitches that you have made

So, first things first, you do your line of stem stitch.

You then get your contrasting thread or same colour thread, whichever you prefer.   Starting from right and working to left, thread under and over each of the stem stitches until you have finished your row.

Voila, one finished stem stitch, whipped.
