TAST 2 Week 2 - - Knotted Loop Stitch.
I had some tension issues with this one, but once I got the hang of it, I really liked the stitch.
I saw some leaves on other people examples and had to do one of my own. Tension is not so good here. I do think this might be a time when a hoop would be beneficial.
I tried overlapping a little with different colors. I like the effect it had, but it was a little bit of a pain to do.
After I did TAST 1 and figured that the Button Hole Stitch and the Knotted Loop Stitch are similar. The Barbed stitch made me wonder what the Knotted Loop Stitch would look like wrapped like that. Didn't work out as nicely, but that could have been a tension issue.
TAST 1 Week 2 - - Button Hole Stitch & Family. I say family because Sharon of Pin Tangle provides the stitches in the family too. Any stitches that were in the family, but not used in future weeks, I practiced also.
Barbed Button Hole Stitch
I didn't much care for this first one. The sewing was down with too thick of thread.
Loved this one though. It turned out much better.
Closed Button Hole Stitch
I was especially pleased with the sun I made and the overlapping of the stitches in different colors. I just like the way the colors (pink and yellow) blend so well to make an orange color if you aren't looking closely.
Then I found this tutorial and it showed a slightly different way to do the stitch. I like the stability and consistency this way provided and I like the woven look of the stitch.
