TAST Weeks 3-4

Week 3: Fly Stitch

For Week 3 of TAST, I added a fly stitched seam to the crazy quilted messenger bag I am making.

(Click on any photo for a larger view.)

Mill Hill Magnifica #10026 Old Rose Beads were added above each fly stitch to create small flowers. 

Week 4: Detached Chain Stitch

Detached Chain Stitch is also known as a Lazy Daisy Stitch. It is incredibly versatile and may be the one I use most often. 

Clusters of 5 detached chain stitches with colonial knots in the centers create simple flowers.

A third seam was added to my messenger bag using straight stitches (flower stems), pairs of detached chain stitches (leaves), and sets of fly stitches (heart flowers.)

Here is a photo of this seam in progress. The hearts are made with two fly stitches (like the pink one here) that meet in the center.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

TAST stands for Take a Stitch Tuesday. It is a personal challenge to learn a new embroidery stitch each week. The challenge is offered by Sharon B. of Pintangle.com. Anyone may join in at any time. This link will take you to the TAST FAQs. Find the TAST Facebook Group here.

I'm glad you decided to do the TAST challenge again - it's always fun to see the creative ways you use the different stitches.
