TAG | Bracelet
It is Tuesday again!! My result of the Take A Tuesday Stitch of week 5 is ready to be shown here. Last week the name of the stitch was Herringbone stitch. Looks like crosses and I cannot recall I did this stitch ever before, But it was fun again.
I used a self made wetfelted cuff in reds and added the stitch with2 different 3 ply-embroidery thread to it. the only mistake I made was in the name.. I thought it was herrington, hihihi changed the “ T” in a “B” and added an “E” and voila it was herringbone again
Starting with the inside outside …..
Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday!! Oh and I have finished a new felted hat… will show it on Thursday as I don’t have proper light here on Wednesday.. will be at my work all day and back at home when it is already dark…
Another Work In Progress of my felted cuffs with the embroidery stitch called Herringbone stitch of the TAST project. As I decided to make a sampler cuff from every stitch. The cuff- bracelet is my testpiece for the stitch. I didn’t tried this stitch out on some woven fabric, but I started straight away on the felt. I wanted to stitch evenly, using the colors as a guideline. ( I think you cannot tell anymore, but there were 4 `lines` of different reds) That’s why my stitches ain’t even along both sides…
So here a sneak preview of my not jet finished cuff
Wishing you a very nice Sunday. I’ll be felting again finally , jippie!!
This last week I enjoyed myself with learning the Feather stitch explained onPintangle It is actually a combination of the 2 previous stitches. I first started on a little piece of embroidery raster from my daughter and after I knew what to do I gave it a try on a new made bracelet.
I really must admit this is so much fun and easy to do without getting wet, hihihi
I just found out in Dutch this stitch is called `taksteek `.
Enjoy your Tuesday!!
Take A Stitch Tuesday week 2 of 2012. This is a challenge where I wil learn an embroidery stitches every week of 2012.So the second stitch was called the Button hole stitch and announced on this blog: Pin Tangle
I Dutch I know this stitch as ` feston steek` and I already taught my daughter this stitch a year ago when she made this edge of her slippers,
Unfortunately one shoe is missing…..
She made a new piece of felt and asked me “Mummy I want to make a nice edge…, what do you think is nice to do? “ I said the new stitch of the TAST.. ” OH I cannot do so Mummy, must be too difficult…” Then I showed her the post and she said: Hej, I know that stitch!! I can do that too !! ” So she started working on the edge of her piece of felt immediately This is her :
The difficulty about stitching on felt is you don;t have any raster or weaving lines…. so making all stitches nice and even is not so simple…
Here is a detail of an edge she made. (I still need to hide the ends )
My own contributions to this weeks stitch was again a felted bracelet.. I really like making them and doing some embroidery on them So I decided to go for a bracelet every week… I hope to have nice collection at the end of this year.. imagine 52 bracelets with a different stitch per bracelet…… I already saw them displayed in my dreams
The inner circle isn’t stitches with the button hole stitch, but I just loved to use this stitch, I know as “whitches” stitch
What I love about embroidering onto felt is that I can hide all ends in the felt… as you can see on the picture not one stitch came through..
the bracelet turned inside out…
