Over on the Martingale blog Stitch This!, they’ve put up a video showing how master appliquér Yoko Saito stitches the most narrow little stems and vines. The technique is not new, but what astonished me upon watching the video is how she rocks in the first set of stitches all at once. Prepare to be amazed!

Cheers,

I’m posting a teapot a week for 16 weeks over on Instagram. Here’s the first one!


Made with Ann’s Arbor fabrics by Minick and Simpson for Moda. I hand appliquéd it using the back-basting method of preparation. It feels great to be going back to hand work for awhile. You can click Back-Basting in the Categories for a visual tutorial of this fabulous method.

Until next time,
Kay
