This finish uses an overcast backstitch. (If you click through, you will see how to make a piece of stitching into a bookmark. Jen is very clever.) I like this method because all the finishing is on the outside and is decorative. (I plan to show you a couple of even more decorative ways to do this.) Even better, I don't have to do any blind stitching. I'm so bad at it, it usually distorts my finished object.
If you'd like to see more action shots of this finishing technique, check out these blogs:
This type of finish is often coupled (as I have here) with twisted cord. There are loads of tutorials for this.
- Vonna can show you how, using the Krienik Cording Drill.
- DMC shows you how to do it with just a pen.
- Head here if you want a video.
I do intend to add to the knowledge here, but not just yet.
