MORE STRAIGHT STITCHING

This is some stitching inspired by a drawing from a piece of cloth. I made the resulting textile into a box.

Just Stitch

Come and enjoy a day of stitching at Missenden Abbey on Saturday 19th January 2019

Visit http://www.missendenschoolofcreativearts.co.uk for more information and to book.

Be inspired by colour and mark onto cloth. We will explore straight stitch which is the basis of many simple stitches such as satin stitch, running stitch, back stitch, cross stitch, and seeding. It is a simple mark that can be used as a line, to edge a shape or to create texture by massing it together.

These are samples inspired by objects on a shelf and using straight stitching in

different ways.
