Blog > Padded straight stitch

  Padded straight stitch     Click on image to enlarge           Padded straight stitch works well with ribbon when you require a puffed-up stitch for a rose bud or a petal of a flower.   To form the stitch, make a smaller straight stitch first and cover it with a slightly larger straight stitch.   Work over a spare tapestry needle so the stitches are slightly raised off the surface of the design and use a gentle tension so as not to flatten the stitches.     Here is another example:         If necessary, use a matching thread and tiny stab stitches to shape the stitch along the edge and tips.   Stitch diagram is © Metz Press and Di van Niekerk.
