Buttonhole stitch

Today I made some time to work on the buttonhole stitch. I used a blue fabric I rust dyed last year and 3 different embroidery threads: blue stranded floss, brown broder special and light blue Caron Wildflowers.
It was fun to watch the fabric change while I was stitching. The marks inside the brown buttonhole stitches are from a screw.
This is one of the 12 samplers I prepared for TAST 2012, they are 15 x 15 cm or 6 x 6 inch. I'm just stitching on the sampler that matches the stitch for me. For the buttonhole stitch I worked on 2 different samplers. I wrote about my buttonhole border here.


  1. That's neat, Annet. Love your rusted fabric and the threads you've used.

  2. I like your stitching on the rust dyed fabric.

  3. I love rust of all sorts and this is a great idea for a sampler!

  4. Beautiful.. a river running through a southwest canyon :)

  5. Jen is right - that does look like something you might see from an airplane, flying over the southwestern US.

  6. Very nice design and use of the buttonhole stitch. You are so creative!!!

  7. I love the way you have outlined with buttonhole stitch. nice colours.

    1. Thanks, the fabric just aske for outlining!
