Threaded Arrowhead Stitch

This is a decorative version of the arrowhead stitch. Again, it can be used to creative beautiful out linings or borders.

You need to know the arrowhead stitch to be able to continue with this tutorial.

Fig 1: Make a horizontal row of arrow head stitches. Fig 2: Now, bring the needle out with a contrasting thread, from one end, as shown. Pass it under the two arrow head stitches as in the picture.
Fig 3: Turn around and pass it under the two arrow head stitches and the next stitch, as illustrated. Fig 4: Repeat the process for the rest of the row.
Fig 5: A finished row looks like this. Each angle of the arrow head stitch would be circled by the contrasting thread that was woven around it. \

    Hi Sarah,

    First your work is so amazing, I love it. Can you please tell how to follow your blog?

    I cannot get the url in my Google Reader list. So I’ll get all the updates in my list.

    One day I even may attend one of your workshops if I can combine my travel in India and the workshop. Well that’s all for the future and hoping it may come true.

    Hi. These tutorials are fantastic. I can very clearly see how to do each stitch. Most tutorials for this stuff I find are usually very inadequate.

    I’m new to the embroidery idea. I have a friend who wants a script embroidered onto velvet, probably using a glittery thread like gold or silver, can you recommend which stitches to concentrate on for writing words in this situation. As I said I am new and would appreciate a little guidance here from the experts 🙂 Thanks heaps

      Dear Seline,

      I suppose the letters you will use will be small as your friend wants to embroider a script. So, I would suggest satin stitch. You could use rows of chain stitch or split stitch too, but since she will use metallic thread over velvet, I am not too sure if it is such a good idea.

      I hope this helps.
