Also known as : Fly stitch filling
This stitch is done using rows of horizontal fly stitches in a particular symmetry to fill an area. Visually, it is similar to the trellis stitch.
|Fig 1: Make a horizontal row of fly stitch as shown. The fly stitch should have a very short tail or anchor, so as to give it a V shape. You can refer the closed fly stitch tutorial for this.||Fig 2: Now, start the next horizontal row of fly stitch below the previous one. This row would look like a mirror image of the first one. The anchors of the fly stitches in the second row would fall over the anchors of the ones on the first row.
They look like crosses pinned down in the middle.
|Fig 3: Continue making rows of fly stitches to fill up the entire area to be covered. The illustration shows a sample of four rows. Each row would mirror the previous row.|
