How to Sew The Split Stitch

Hi everyone, it's about time to learn another stitching method.  Today I am going to show you how to do a Split Stitch.  Split stitch creates more decorative look if you want to do a fine line. After you complete the line, it will look like tiny chain stitch, but a lot more delicate.

The Split Stitch is suitable for fine line or embroider pattern which is small in size. I am going to show you how to embroider a string of berries by using split stitch and French knots.

That's it for now, and I see you again next week!

How To Personalize A Wedding Gift

Looking for a perfect wedding gift for your best friend is a tough job. Recently I am looking for a wedding gift for my best friend and I came up with an idea to make it special!

I designed a monogram for the bride and groom and embroidered it on a valance, and I sewed a nice little curtain to go with the gift.

Let me show you how to turn an ordinary gift to a special one by adding some personalized elements.

As you can see, it's not that hard and won't take long.  You can actually do the same to your clothes too. Give it a try!

How to Sew The Fishbone Stitch

Let's use the Fishbone Stitch to fill leaf shapes, as the stitch creates a "vein" down the center of the leaf.  It's not difficult at all. Try it!

The advantage of fish bone stitch is the “vein” is obvious at the center after you complete it and you don’t have to do anything about it afterwards! Once you master the technique, you can play around with the stitching for different shapes of leaves.
