STITCH OF THE MONTH

Corduroy Stitch
(in varying widths)
 
 
 
In the blow-up above of the background of a recently finished “Downward Dog” acrylic tray, the background is stitched in varying widths of diagonal long stitches worked horizontally. Notice how some rows are over two and the others over three. The stitcher randomly changed the direction of the stitch. This stitch can be worked horizontally or vertically, in one color or in complimentary/contrasting colors and/or in a mixture of fibers to create the desired affect. When used as a background stitch it works up quickly (which we all love). Working on stretchers bars is recommended for this type of long stitch. It will lay flatter and keep the canvas from pulling out of shape.

TIP OF THE MONTH
