TAG | Buttonhole stitch
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…
