Great tips! I always stitch inside my backstitch so its great to see how you do it (as I am self taught)

Great tips!!! thanks!!


Melly, your satin stitch demo has been invaluable to me. Thank you for making it so clear. Nor for the practice.....:-))


LOL that should be "now" for the practice!


Hi Melly, Thanks for the tips. I stab stitch as well, I find it's more accurate. I forgot about outlining the satin stitch, thanks for the reminder.



I always enjoy reading your tips. I find them very helpful.

Oh! Imitation blanket stitch...sneaky you!!!! Thanks for sharing and answering my question. No longer will I have creeping blanket stitch in space, phew!


I'm sure you'll help other satin stitch losers like myself to achieve perfect stitches! ;)


awesome Melly - I have never outlined my satin stitch with backstich and I always struggle to get neat shapes - I can't wait to give this a try :) Thanks so much!


Thanks Melly, I have started the stitchery Kokeshi Friends out of your book and now I'll take all this on board while completing it. I'm sure it will help :-).
