TAST Week 6 Algerian Eye Stitch – Detail 149 February 9th, 2007

black and colour Algerian eye stitch is not a stitch that I will do often, partly because I find counted thread work hard on my eyes and partly because it needs a hoop and I don’t use a hoop for crazy quilting…but for the TAST challenge I found an orphan block that I could get a hoop onto and Sharon gave me some waste canvas so that I could do the stitch on a crazy block…

Algerian Eye Stitch

removing waste canvasTo remove the waste canvas damp it slightly which softens the fibers and breaks the bond holding the fibres together so that you can use tweezers to pull the threads out one at a time.

I had stitched a heart shape but after removing the waste canvas I thought that it looked to squared off on not well defined so I used a metalic thread to do a buttonhole stitch which I worked between the spokes of the Algerian eye stitch.

I liked the way the buttonhole worked but it still didn’t look finished to me…

Detail 149 finishedI thought I would try a heart shaped bead in the middle…as it turned out I decided that a tiny red crystal finished it off nicely.

    I love the heart and your method for making it. I will have to give that a try.
