Take a Stitch Tuesday 2023 Week 27 Beyond TAST
The stitch for this week is an interesting variety of Buttonhole stitch, called Triangular Buttonhole stitch. Visit the tutorial for instructions. Scroll further down the page and you will see instructions on how to include beads in this stitch. Different patterns can be created by threading the beads on different parts of the stitch. With this in mind, you can experiment with various combinations of seed beads and bugle beads.
If you are new to hand embroidery the challenge is to learn the stitch and share what you have learned. If you are an experienced embroiderer, enjoy Beyond TAST and give your work a modern twist. And of course, share it online so beginners can see what can be done with a little imagination.
