Surface Slip Stitch TutorialSurface Slip Stitch Tutorial6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I love how this stitch is an easy way to add detail or to make professional, clean-looking color changes.
I've used the Surface Slip Stitch in these projects:
- The black line for the froggy smile - I used it for the white "reflection" on the cherries and apples (back side facing out)
- I stitched it here with black around the penguin's face so that zig-zag line doesn't show where the colors meet.
- I used it here on the sleeves and shirt top and also the shoes - It's the dark pink stitching here around the front
Let me know what you think of this tutorial and if you have any questions about the surface slip stitch or crochet!
