31 days of embroidery {buttonhole stitch}

October 21, 2012

Today’s stitch is the buttonhole stitch. It’s kind of a filler stitch or good for a border. I didn’t really find many examples  of the buttonhole stitch that was super close together like my book explained. I did find this example by jennypennypoppy on flickr and while her stitches aren’t super close together, they still are awesome and give a great effect.

Here is a link to photo directions
(note that my embroidery book mentions that what makes the buttonhole stitch differ from a blanket stitch is how close the stitches are together. I couldn’t really find any other online directions that expressed that same instruction.

and here is my video!

Hope you had a great weekend! Hard to believe we are on our last full week of October!
