Mirrored Chevron Stitch

This stitch, as the name suggests, is two rows of chevron stitches mirroring each other. Infinite rows of this stitch can be created to make beautiful fillings with effect. Try using different colors for each row or shades of the same color for different effects.

You need to know the Chevron Stitch to be able to do this stitch.

Fig 1: Start by doing a row of chevron stitch. Then, start doing another row of chevron stitch below the first. Only, this time, it begins inverted, as shown. Fig 2: All the points of the top row and the bottom row would coincide, as you can see. This creates the β€˜mirrored’ effect.
Fig 3: A portion of the two rows looks like this.

      Dear Aisha,
      We are coming out with an Ebook. It is not a printed book. So, you can purchase it online and print it out yourself, if you wish. Once the book is ready, we will announce it. πŸ™‚

    Hi Sarah,

    I am looking for the right stitch for eyes for handmade dolls. will you be able to help me?

    I use stain stitch now and the doll has real small eyes.i need to have small dots and eye lashes.

    Regards
    Rohini πŸ™‚

      Dear Rohini,
      If you are looking for a dot, the easiest stitch would be a small lazy daisy. Else, just go for a french knot. Add some straight stitches for the lashes.

        I will let you know once I am pleased with my results.. πŸ™‚
