My Band Sampler 159 – Stitch Explorer Trellis Stitch Tea Cup – Detail 903 February 22nd, 2009

Trellis Stitch Tea Cup with fingers to show sizeI used a fine silk thread for this little Tea Cup and Saucer and it was somewhat tedious to stitch but I will do tedious if it means I can make cute things.

I started with a flat spiral trellis stitch circle for the centre of the saucer and worked a couple of extra rows around the outside edge, next time I will do a smaller circle to start and more rows around the edge.

For the cup I stitched a circle of back stitch on the saucer stitched a row into them, increased a little on the second and third rows to give the cup shape and continued to add rows until the cup was high enough…For the handle I made some loops of thread the size of the handle and worked trellis stitch over them, it similar to a buttonhole loop but the trellis stitch doesn’t twist like buttonhole stitch does

    Oh. My. Gosh. That is crazy cute and such a “natural” for this kind of stitch that I’m amazed we haven’t seen hundreds of these. I love it when someone stumbles onto the simple or obvious solution yet executes it with such skill and whimsy. I love it!

    That is adorable!

    This is awesome. I have yet to experiment with this stitch, but I’m looking forward to seeing where it takes me. I really like the variations you’ve done (the hat especially). I also want you to know you’ve inspired me to start a band sampler. I’d never heard of it before, but I love the idea, and the Stitch Explorer is a perfect way for me to get started!

    One day, I have made an embroidered hat (with a pattern in a japanese sttich) but the stitch was not sprial treillis; and the cup is WONDERFUL!
    You are GREAT!

    Haven’t been here for a while, Annie, and I’m so happy to see your trellis stitch experiments. What fun, and so adorable! I’m just plugging away, learning Elizabethan stitches, with a lot of practice.
