Are you ready to learn some more embroidery stitches? Here are the instructions on how to make the sheaf stitch, satin stitch and the satin stitch with outline.

The sheaf stitch is one of my favorite stitches, it looks like a bow! And the satin stitches are perfect on their own or for filling in spaces. Go ahead, give them a try! 


SHEAF STITCH

  • Bring the needle up from behind the fabric.
  • Select the length of the stitch and insert the needle back into the fabric. 
  • Repeat two times until you have three parallel lines (straight stitches).
  • Bring the needle up through the center and slide under the top stitch.
  • Move the needle over to the opposite side and slide under the bottom stitch. 
  • Insert the needle back into the fabric and pull through until you have a loop around the three stitches. 

SATIN STITCH

  • Bring the needle up from behind the fabric
  • Select the length of the stitch and insert the needle back into the fabric. 
  • Bring the needle back up from the same side.
  • Insert the needle back into the opposite side.
  • Repeat as needed; making sure that the stitches are close to each other.  

 


SATIN STITCH (WITH OUTLINE)

  • Start by creating the outline; I used the back stitch to make the round shapes.
  • Fill in the shape by bringing the needle up from one side of the fabric and inserting it back on the opposite side.
