Chain Stitch

Here is a simple stitch to try. You may already be familiar with chain stitch. We're playing around with the basics this month!! It is really fun to constrain yourself to exploring one stitch on your ATC, or maybe you'd like to mix it up and try all the variations like rosette chain stitch, double chain stitch, etc. Check the link at the end for some variations.

If you've never tried this before follow the steps below. You can click any of the images to see them larger.

Create an ATC using chain stitch and embellish as you like.

For some further instructions and variations on this stitch check out: Mary's Video Tutorial on Needle'n'Thread
