Week 2 TAST Buttonhole Stitch

This is my sampler for TAST Week 2, the Buttonhole stitch. I stitched on Aida using DMC floss.

I had prior experience with the buttonhole / blanket stitch. This week I played with variations of the stitch. Some of the stitches were natural to me (buttonhole, closed blanket) but some (flowers, filling) required a lot of picking out stitches.

Variations I stitched.

  • Buttonhole stitch (spaced)
  • Buttonhole stitch (varying lengths)
  • Buttonhole wheels
  • Buttonhole flowers
  • Buttonhole stitch (close)
  • Closed blanket stitch
  • Buttonhole filling

    Reminds me of the baseball stitch we used to repair the fabric on torn fabric aircraft.

    I was amazed at how many variations there are! I tried a wheel on aida cloth, too, but took it out — didn’t nearly look as good as yours!
