Vandyke Stitch for Hand Embroidery









So the stitch of the week today is the very pretty Vandyke Stitch brought to you as always by the very lovely Mary Corbet.  Not this stitch is more for the experienced but very worth learning as being a band stitch is can be used to decorate all sorts of things.... I think on a pillow case it would look beautiful.....

You can work the stitch open or closed as Mary explains in her video and you can embroider great leaves with this stitch.

This picture on the left is one that Mary Corbet stitched with vandyke stitch to form these leaves ..... so worth learning.

So make a warm drink and enjoy listening to Mary whilst she shows you how...

Have a great weekend and Happy Stitching....
