The Stitch Files – Fly Stitch

I copied a small section of my TAST1 Fly stitching – the original is below.

From memory only one other stitch was included in this scene.  I think it was the stems on the 3 star flowers.

This is an amazing stitch for variety, yet it is so simple.

Catching 4 flies with one slap (Dutch saying) and a fan using Sassa Lynne

Agapanthus -stems 6 strands DMC and perle 12

Minnamurra variegated perle for Reversed Fly stitch

Perle 12 arches with Detached chains in rayon.  This is unfinished and will be on a heart later.
