Eyelet Wheel Stitch

This is an easy-to-do a stitch that can add texture and interest to your fabric.

I will work around a circle divided into many equal parts to resemble a cartwheel. The stitch points will fall on the outer circle and the center.

Fig 1: Start by bringing the needle out from A and in through B, two points on the outer circle. Fig 2: Now, bring the needle out again through A. Then, take the needle in through C, the center. Come out through D, as shown.
Fig 3: Now, repeat the procedure as in the first step. Fig 4: Continue with this process for the rest of the circle.
Fig 5: A finished wheel looks like this.

      Dear Palak,

      Thanks for the interest shown. We are still in the process of making the e book. There is a great deal of delay because of my little children. Of course, I am trying to speed up without compromising on the quality. Once it is done, it will be announced and you can pick it.

    dear sarah

    you explain eyelet wheel stich are very clear. step by step are clear, but i want your hand embroidey with eyelet wheel stich perform to me.

    you can send me all about hand embroidery to my office address at SMP N KUDU JOMBANG JAWA TIMUR INDONESIA
    and my amail Orini2604@gmail.com

  7. Hi! You are my dream come true. I hope, anyway.
    The dream is that I will not be thrown in prison for printing some of this off and given (no $ involved) this to people who may need it. I would like to explain, because your site could be yet another amazing catalyst.

    I am CEO of an international aid org that has small (i.e. ignored by big orgs but really needed) projects in many countries. We also have a ‘side0kick’ named the StarFish Concept.
    Within this people choose something, once, often, to do for free that makes a difference to others. And what is coming out is unbelievable.

    One such projects is to make starfish pillow tops, embroider by suggestions or free, hand or machine, quilt…anything goes. We put the top together, add loose stuffing, and they are given to todds to teens in orphanages and hospitals in developing countries around the world. Now: Haiti. Late summer: Russia. October: Suriname. Spring ’14: Nepal.
    We provide ‘kits’ that include all top materials: 3 fabrics, one with a face on it, floss, needles, pins,ribbons, buttons, yarns.. you name it. People make them as they wish, put all the unused materials back in (sometimes adding scraps of their own), put their name on it and pre-postaged (or sometimes they pay postage) back to us in PA at our main address and get it overseas. We first send one, then more if someone asks. If you’re handy this can be one evening’s work. Great to teach (kids) first stitching, senior citizens, home-bound people, embroidery/craft lovers. So if you can pass this on, and see why I want to run some of your pages off (they are great!!!!) you are a StarFish, too!
    You can call me at 570 226 6888 or 570 229 6025
    address 22 Revelstone Dr, Honesdale, PA 18431 USA

      Dear Marianne,

      Thanks for writing to us. I think what you are doing is really great.
      I would only ask you for some time before requesting for a kit. Right now, we are vacationing at my mother’s and won’t be back home for another 3 weeks. Until then, it would be great if you could probably email me some more details like, how to request for the kit, the cost involved (if any) etc…
      If it works out from my end, I can try to order for more kits.

    dear sarah
    everything is nice but could u explain how to draw on cloth first then we will stich on it

    • sarah India Google Chrome Windows says:

      Dear Kavita,
      You can draw on the fabric using pencil. It can be washed off easily. If you want to trace a design, you can do it using carbon paper.
