Craft with Racaire – Project 2 – fast and easy pouch tutorial – Step 3.4 – Chain Stitch & how to use it for decorative hand sewing

Craft with Racaire – Project 2 – fast and easy pouch tutorial – Step 2.3 – Chain Stitch and how to use it for hand sewingYesterday I showed you pictures of my finished 12th century embroidery “Saint Michael and the Dragon” and today I have again new pictures for you. Todays photo tutorial brings us one step closer to finishing another project – the fast and easy pouch. 😀

As you might remember, my last posting for the fast and easy pouch tutorial was about the technique details and the possibilities of the very basic hand embroidery technique “Chain Stitch“. The posting about the “Chain Stitch” was a detailed preparation for todays next step – the actual application of this stitch to the fast and easy pouch.

Yes, today I am going to show you how I used this basic embroidery technique – Chain Stitch – for the decorative hand sewing for my fast and easy pouch.

Todays motto is:
“Chain Stitch & how to use it for decorative hand sewing”

I am sorry, but this content is restricted to users with Premium membership.

..and after this detailed photo tutorial we are again one step closer to finishing the pouch. I guess you might ask now why we don’t use this technique more often for handsewing… *giggle*

Best regards Racaire
