There are 21 embroidery stitches illustrated in my new book, Joyful Stitching. I’ve found these to be the most useful stitches for free-form embroidery projects. Most are simple, easy stitches but I’ve added a few zingers to liven things up. With detailed step-by-step written directions and images showing how to make the stitches, you can’t go wrong.
Lets say you are making a bird with very attractive legs. Then the Satin Stitch and the Cross-Stitch are a perfect combination. Put together, they make a lovely striped pattern that any bird would envy. Heck, I’d like to have striped legs like that! Here’s how to make the Satin Stitches and Cross-Stitches for your next bird leg adventure.
And the lucky winners (I couldn’t resist giving away 2 sets of the blue wool and orange thread) for the Rare Songbird project are Janet of dragonflyquilts and Lesley G. Congratulations! May your bird legs always be attractive.
