The Embroidery How-To Video Collection here on Needle ‘n Threadexpands again with a video tutorial on the fern stitch. This is a simple stitch that can be used in a number of hand embroidery applications: as a decorative border, as greenery in embroidered flower arrangements, to make curves and lines interesting, etc.
The basic unit of the fern stitch is three straight stitches that converge at the same point. You can achieve interesting and varied effects with the stitch by widening it as you work down the “fern” (or stem), by taking it narrower, by curving it, by overlapping it – play around with it, and you’ll see how versatile it is!
The video for fern stitch is now defunct – but a brand new replacement is coming soon! Reason: when I first started blogging and uploading videos, online video was rather new, and all my videos were hosted at Google Video. When Google merged with YouTube, Google video became defunct, and eventually, all old videos were migrated to YouTube. This one didn’t quite make the migratory journey.
I’ll be updating it soon, though, so what this space!
Thanks for checking back!
