Silk-Ribbon Embroidery: Five More Stitches
Fly stitch fern
This stitch is ideal for filling in floral designs, the same way a florist would fill in an arrangement with ferns (if stitched in perle cotton) or sprigs of leaves (if stitched in ribbon).
|To make this stitch, work from the top of the fern leaf to the bottom. Start with a straight stitch, and bring the needle up at A, and down at B. Bring the needle up at C, loop the thread or ribbon to the right, bring the needle down at D and up at E, leaving the loop under the needle and pull through.||Bring the needle down at F and up at G to start the next stitch.|
