For the third Beyond TAST challenge, we explored laid work fillings and creating patterns using couching.
To be honest, my heart wasn’t in playing with these stitches, so I learnt some classic ones instead. (I really like them, I just didn’t want to invent my own.)
To find instructions for all of the techniques I used, check out my Laidwork Pinterest Board and “Embroidery Stitches” by Barbara Snook. You’ll probably find instructions in any embroidery book that has more than the basics.
