Mind Blown: Reverse Chain Stitch

First off, look at that pretty chain stitch.  So pretty!  Now prepare to have your mind blown: it’s backwards and it’s easy.  Boom!

Jenny Sublime recently posted an awesome how-to chain stitch on her blog where she shares a trick a student showed her.  To get chain stitch to be tidy and to get it exactly where you want it to go, just follow her easy tutorial.

This free Czech Inspired Folk Flowers pattern is from Mary Corbet’s Needle’n’Thread.  Look how good the chain stitch filling looks!  I started them with a tiny stitch at the bottom of the flower and they took the curve super well.  My french knots now…  Well, let’s master one stitch at a time, all right?
