Kids Stitch Diagrams and Instructions Part II
Chevron Stitch Bring the thread through on the lower line on the left side, insert the needle a little to the right on the same line and take a small stitch to the left, emerging at the center of the stitch being made. Next, insert the needle on the upper line a little to the right and take a small stitch to the left (A). insert the needle again on the small line to the right and take a small stitch to the left, emerging at the center (B). Work this way alternately on the upper and lower lines.
Feather Stitch Bring the needle out at the top center, hold the thread down with the left thumb, insert the needle a little to the right on the same level and take a small stitch down to the center, keeping the thread under the needlepoint. Next, insert the needle a little to the left on the same level and take a stitch to the center (A), keeping the thread under the needle point. Work these two movements alternately.
French Knot - Bring the thread out at the spot you want to make your stitch. Hold the thread down with the left thumb and wind the thread two times around the needle (A). Still holding the thread, twist the needle back to your starting point and put it back through the fabric close to where the first thread came out. (See arrow). Pull the thread through to the back and go on to the next stitch (B).
Chain Stitch - Bring the thread out at the top of the line and hold down with your left thumb (if right-handed). Insert the needle where it last emerged from the fabric and bring the point of the needle out a distance away. Pull the thread through, keeping the working thread under the point of the needle.
Lazy Daisy - Work in the same way as the Chain Stitch (A), but secure each loop at the center with a small stitch (B). This stitch may be worked singly or in groups to form flower petals.
