Week 11 of the #YearOfStitch : Cloud Filling

I bet you thought I forgot about you this week…I didn’t. Sunday still counts as “this week” right?

I think you are going to like this filler stitch. It’s super versatile. 

Here you go!

And now for your photo tutorial:

Start by laying your vertical stitches

I’m going to show you a tight pattern and a looser pattern

Now you begin your diagonal stitches. Come up from the back under the center of your first vertical stitch (be sure to knot your new thread so it doesn’t pull through)

image

Start weaving your new thread under your vertical stitches, row by row

to finish off, poke the needle through to the back under the center of the last vertical stitch and tie off.

Let’s talk options…

Top left, you just keep weaving the needle under your vertical stitches from the top to the bottom.

Bottom right, I spaced the vertical stitches differently and then when I was weaving the yellow I ended each row by poking the needle through to the back (like you do to start and finish). 

Bottom left, same as bottom right but then I came back through at the end and created a border.

I hope you enjoy this one.
