Sunday Stitch School- No. 76. Loopy flower stitch

This lesson was tricky to hold and I’m not happy with my results but here are the first two. It took two goes to get the top one.

 

 

 

I tried several ways to hold the loops while stitching them down but none worked for me.  I used Perle 8 thread on Aida.  For the second effort, I actually used the wrong end of a crochet needle and laid the sewing needle on it, winding the thread around both and then with my face screwed up as I concentrated,   my fingers tightly holding the utensils,   I tilted the needle and pushed it through and down into the fabric.  Not remotely as it should have been done but it is a bit firmer than the first one.

This I am happy with.  I used a hand-dyed wool thread that was about the thickness of one strand of the perle 8.(there are 2)  I’m wondering if the rough texture of the wool helped hold the loops together while I caught them to the fabric.

  1. Excellent Loopy Flowers! I love the variegated thread!
    It CAN be tricky to hold down the loops… but I found it easy most of the time.

    • You are a kind Teacher, Queenie. I think stitching the flower in a close circle helped improve the look of my stitches by holding them up.

  2. This isn’t a stitch I’ve had much success with either and always felt as though I needed to be a juggler to handle it. Not one of my favourites I have to admit (although I love your flower).

    • I’m satisfied that the shaggy look works better than a formal version.
