I love to do any kind of hand stitching, so I joined a group “Take a Stitch Tuesday” (TAST). This is a challenge group where every Tuesday you are challenged with learning a new stitch. I have always wanted to cover a piece of clothing with embroidery but have never challenged myself to do it…until now. I have an old robe I made years ago, and I have decided that will be canvas. So here goes….
Week #1 Chain Stitch. This is a pretty simple stitch for me. I did a white chain stitch along the top of the pockets. Each week you are provided the chance to enhance the basic stitch so I also decided to do a beaded chain stitch. A little bit harder but still fun. I ran this stitch along the whole collar front.
I started this challenge late(the story of my life). Now I’m off to start week two!!
