TAST 28: Up And Down Buttonhole Grass
Up And Down Buttonhole is a very quick stitch. I renamed it Comic Book Grass Stitch as, well, that’s what I stitched and I think it works fantastically as grass. Very boyish stitch if there ever was one.
Great. Another smudge on my lense. But who cares when there’s embroidery floss to be stitched in that glorious shade of green!
I’m not too keen on the blue ink I used for stamping but it kind of works in this. I also see potential to layer this stitch to create more dimensional field. Lengthening the stems, using less strands etc…
In summa summarum, not my favourite stitch but still useful. Next on my list is Basque Stitch, which I love, love, love. My other samplers are listed here.
