Fly stitch

Fly stitch is worked the same way as you would with a detached chain stitch

or lazy daisy stitch, but insert the needle a short distance away from

where the first stitch emerged:



Anchor the stitch by taking the needle to the back of your work each time.


Long anchoring stitches can be made in varying lengths for an interesting effect.

This stitch is ideal for stems and branches. Also useful  for constructing roses… which I will show you next week.
