Week 12: Chevron Stitch
Week 11 was a break week, so the 11th stitch of this round of TAST is the Chevron Stitch. It was introduced on March 20th in this post and the directions for this stitch may be found here.
I followed this edge on one of Sharon B.'s templates to keep my stitches relatively even.*
I used size 8 pink perle cotton for the Chevron Stitches. I used this stitch to couch down a black velvet ribbon on the messenger bag I am working on. After the seam was stitched, I created flowers along the ribbon with clusters of pink and blue seed beads. (I like to individually secure each bead by passing the thread through it 3 times and then knotting the thread 3 times on the back. This holds each bead securely in place, and if one bead falls off in the use of the bag, the others will not all fall off.)
TAST stands for Take a Stitch Tuesday. This is a personal stitching challenge offered by Sharon B. of Pintangle.com. You may learn more about TAST here.
This week, stitch 25 was announced, so I will be playing catch up!
