Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches I hope you find this needlework dictionary useful and with it able to improve your hand embroidery skills. To assist those who are new to the craft of hand embroidery I have categorised each stitch as to its degree of difficulty. An icon of a single pair of scissors indicates that the stitch is easy to work and you should not hesitate to try it. If you are new to learning needlework. If you see two scissors, the stitch requires more skill. Three scissors indicate that the stitch needs skill and practice.

double chain stitch This stitch follows the same technique as a simple chain stitch. The only difference between the two is that a double chain stitch is done over two parallel stitch lines, instead of one. Thus, in the end, the visual effect is that it looks more or less like an open feather stitch.

Sew on a Button Sitting here and wondering what my next topic for my blog will be and with the major holidays having passed (ok I know that Memorial Day and 4th July is just right around the corner and if I wait any longer those too will also pass me by). But, I knew there was one that I haven’t attempted and needed to accomplish – How Many Ways To Sew On A Button…? yes, I’m challenging myself. The Addicted Cross Stitcher's Page The Addicted Cross Stitcher Over the years, cross stitch has been refered to as the gentle art. This artform has been taught to the young and passed down through the generations. Once used as a marketing tool to show how marriageable a young woman was, it now has taken on a more exciting art form (in my humble opinion).

Bendy Dolls i LOVE bendy dolls. i really do. i remember first making these back when i was in girl scouts as a kid. Of course the ones i make now are much nicer, but the concept is still the same. They are very easy to make, and kids love them. i've had a lot of requests from folks asking just how they are made, so i thought i'd put together a tutorial. After repairing a bunch of bendies that the puppy chewed on, i decided to make Sage a few news ones for Yule. i'm working on putting together a few full play sets, i'll post pics of those later. Alice was a special request, but i'm feeling inspired to make a full set...including the Mad hatter, Queen of hearts a few of the card knights and a needle felted white rabbit and Cheshire cat. :) Okay, that may be a bit too ambitious for me. :)
