TAST Stitch 68 was the Woven Zig Zag Chain Stitch. Looking at the stitch, I could picture a seam of holly leaves.
I thought using waste canvas would help keep my stitches even.
It appeared to be working.
Unfortunately, I failed to line the dark blue line of the canvas up with the seam, as I thought I had done. Removing the waste canvas revealed the zig zag chain stitch above.
So, I pulled the stitches out and tried again, just eyeballing the distance between stitches.
Size 8 green perle cotton was used to create the woven zig zag chain stitch above.
Clusters of 3 red seed beads created holly berries.
