TAST: Virtual Herringbone

Decided to try something a bit different. Stitched with string on canvas then painted it. Then cut the string away to leave me with a virtual herringbone stitch. Found that if you wet the string first and iron it dry it flattens and will give a better impression. Anyway – just a little experiment!

Above shows part with the string still in and the impression that was left. This was BEFORE I discovered a better way to flatten the string to leave an impression. Thinking about stitching a thinner thread over the top.

    That’s a great experiment. I wouldn’t have expected it to look so clear. I love your second idea of stitchin a bit overlapping on top of it. Beth Robinson
