How to work Outlined or Raised Satin stitch
Mark your shape on fabric using a one of the air erasable pens that are available on the market.
Work the outline of your shape in chain stitch along the line you want to raise.
The next step is to work Satin stitch over the outline. The Chain stitch lifts the satin stitch just enough to define the shape clearly.
To work the stitch bring the thread up through the fabric and work straight satin stitches very close together but not on top of each other.
Continue working straight stitches side by side until you fill the shape.
If the stitches too slack that they sag or too tight that they pucker the fabric use an embroiderers hoop.
