Blanket Stitch a Star Fish

on May 8, 2009

Mmm, it seems I thought I could still embroidery…. easily. WRONG! I thought I was ok at it but it seems time takes away a lot of what you think you can do. I had forgotten a lot of the stitches I had learn a few years ago while Starfishmaking a ‘you have to use every stitch invented’ alphabet flower sampler. So I re-educated myself on… the supposedly simple blanket stitch. I put the tutorial links in my side bar for those who are interested in learning (or relearning) some stitches.

Anyway this is what I made, a starfish pincushion that I’ll probably dangle on a bag, it’s hand stitched, and I used only the blanket stitch to make it.

I bought a tiny wooden embroidery hoop today, so I’m all set to embroider my linen hankerchief soon.
