Whipped Buttonhole Stitch

This stitch is decorative and can be done over a base of blanket stitch or buttonhole stitch.

You need to know the Blanket Stitch or the Buttonhole Stitch to be able to continue with this tutorial.

Fig 1: Make a foundation of blanket stitch or buttonhole stitch. The illustration shows a row of buttonhole stitch.
Now, bring the needle out with a contrasting thread from the left end of the row, as shown.
Fig 2: Whip around between each vertical stitch, as shown. Make sure not to pluck the fabric underneath.
A finished portion would look like this.

    Hi Sarah..

    I simply love your embroidery tutorials. Have used them in creating beautiful dresses for myself and my sisters. However now I wish to teach this art to others too in my area. Just wanted your permission before using your stitches to teach others. Hope you will allow me to share and spread this beautiful craft.
