Fancy hem stitch
This morning I made a few rows of the fancy hem stitch. For the top row I used 2 threads of stranded DMC. I don’t like the stitch in this thread and I made a mistake with the wraps, but I didn’t take the stitches out. The next 3 rows are done in brown and blue perle 5. I shifted the middle row. I like the effect of this, but it would be better to stitch the rows closer together. The last row is done with beads instead of the wraps. I made the hem stitches with red perle 5 and attached a pink bead after each stitch. On the return row I took the needle trough the beads again. I think this is a great variation for crazy blocks!
