The TAST stitch for week 14 is satin stitch. It’s one of the 3 stitches I skipped in TAST 2007, but I found some samples to share for my weekly post with old stitches. This Flying Spaghetti Monster ATC was a request of a swap-buddy. I wrote about the making of it here. It needed lots of satin stitches for the spaghetti! (If you never heard about the Flying Spaghetti Monster, you can read more about him here)
car is part of my raised cup stitch sampler for TAST 2010. First I stitched the
wheels in raised cup stitch. I planned to stitch the rest in cross stitches,
but I didn’t like it . . .
. . so I stitched satin stitches over the
cross stitches to make a padded satin stitch. It’s stitched in perle 5.
is a detail on block 10 of my Crazy Monday quilt. I used 2 threads of stranded
floss for the satin stitches and the Portuguese stem stitch edge.
wanted to embroider a bee on a quilt, but tried it on my doodle cloth first. I
found the pattern in my embroidery book ‘Doodle-stitching’ by Aimee Ray. The
body and sting are stitched in satin stitches with 2 threads of stranded floss.
Later I used my doodle cloth to make fabric buttons.
was flipping through my satin stitch photo’s, I realized I always used this stitch
to represent something. It’s time to do something different now!
