Blog > Straight or stab stitch with thread

Straight or stab stitches, worked in different lengths, are ideal for making stems, blades of grass and thin, pointed leaves. The stitches should be neither too loose, nor too tight, and work with the fabric stretched in a hoop or frame. Stitches are made stab-stitch-style: take the needle and thread all the way to the back of your work before coming up to form the next stitch. Stitch diagram is © Metz Press and Di van Niekerk.
