31 days of embroidery {whipped & threaded back stitch}

October 4, 2012

This is an amazing example from hand embroidery network of what you can do with the threaded/whipped backstitch. It looks like ricrac and would make the most fabulous flowers.

Here is a lovely post with photos on how to do the whipped back stitch

  1. Beautiful. I love the mock rick rack! 🙂 I’m definately going to have to try this. Maybe today I can get some things out and try all the stitches so far. Thanks!
