Herringbone stitch tutorial and Sampler

This week's TAST challenge by Sharon is Herringbone stitch.

There are a few variations to herringbone stitch, but here I have tried only herringbone stitch and double herringbone stitch without any addition of sequeins. Its quite a simple stitch and easy for beginners too..

Pull up the needle at A, down at B and up at C, again down at D and up at E...continue to do so. This is for the basic herringbone stitch.

In this first picture, I have tried double herringbone stitch, herringbone with chain stitch and finally herringbone with buttonhole stitch. 

In the below picture, I have tried herringbone with feather stitch, two rows of double herringbone stitch and multiple lines of herringbone stitch.

I have tried my favourite pattern on swirls and round with double herringbone stitch and chain stitch

Cretan stitch tutorial and sampler

This week's TAST challenge by Sharon on Pintangle is Cretan stitch..

Here is the step by step instructions for beginners

On cloth, the steps look as in the below picture

Some of the patterns that I tried with this stitch

Feather stitch quilted coaster

Materials required

Cloth of desired colour
Embrodiery thread
Embrodiery ring

Cut the cloth in 2 pieces of measurement 11 cm X 11 cm for each coaster. Cut one piece of foam of the same measurement for one coaster.

Attach the foam to one piece of cloth by simple running stitch so that it doesnt move while doing embrodiery. Attach the ring and start working feather stitch -any design of your choice. I have done simple feather stitch square pattern and used chain stitch to form flower like design in a different colour thread. Check Veena's step by step pictorial instructions for feather stitch embrodiery.

Stitch the second piece of cloth covering the foam on the reverse and invert it so that the foam is in between two pieces of cloth. Give a stitch in the inner side so that it stays stiff.

Repeat for more coasters.

This is my work for Sharon's TAST challenge on Pintangle..

Quilted Fridge pockets with applique and buttonhole stitch

This is my first attempt at Buttonhole stitch and am joining Sharon's TAST challenge on Pintangle..

I quilted a fridge pocket, did some applique work and used buttonhole stitch to make it look brighter. Used some laces to cover the machine stitches...Instructions for this would follow soon....

A closer look at the design on each pocket
