It is already week 5 of TAST, Take a stitch Tuesdy. Here is all you need to come along. This week we learn Herringbone Stitch.
Now some of my paradise flowers are embellished with the stitch.
I started by fastening a piece of lace with small Herringbone Stitch, and then I decorated Satin Stitch with Herringbone Stitch on top.
I made a few petals, but the stitches were too long. Therefore I coached them down with Back Stitch.
Then a doodle swatch with Herringbone Stitch mixed with French Knots.
Finally I made a flower with Herringbone and Buttonhole Stitch in the centre.
