CHAIN STITCH

This sim­ple method of chain stitch­ing is worked in re­verse.

Make a small straight stitch. Come up at point 1, slide the nee­dle un­der the small straight stitch, then go down at point 1. Come up at point 2, slide the nee­dle un­der the pre­vi­ous stitch, then go down at point 2.

BUL­LION KNOT

They are tricky at first, but with a lit­tle prac­tice, bul­lion knots are use­ful for cre­at­ing tex­ture and beau­ti­ful flow­ers in your em­broi­dery!

Come up at point 1, then go down at point 2 and back up at point 1, keep­ing the nee­dle through the fab­ric. Wrap the nee­dle un­til the wrap­ping is as long as the space be­tween points 1 and 2. If you don’t want the knot to lay flat against the fab­ric, wrap it a lit­tle more.

Hold­ing the wrap­ping with your non­dom­i­nant hand, care­fully pull the nee­dle through the wrapped thread.

Go down at point 2 and pull the thread un­til the stitch lays flat.
