Surface Slip Stitch TutorialSurface Slip Stitch Tutorial9 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!

How to take crafting commissionsTaking crafting commissionsHow to take crafting commissions9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Accepting commissions is very different from opening a store in a lot of ways, so I decided to write a separate article for it. However, a lot of what I explained in the article "Introduction to setting up your store" also applies to taking commissions, so make sure to read that article too!
Note: I’m writing this with crafting commissions in mind, since that’s my area of expertise. I imagine that some things could also apply to other kind of commissions, but I make no promises
What is a commission?
