New Stitch Monday – Decorative Borders over 6
Last week I shared a few decorative borders that were over 4 threads. This week thought I would share a basic decorative border over 6 threads. By changing the stitches used in the center you can change the look of the stitch. In diagram “A” the center is a simple Smyrna Cross. You can do this using the same thread that you stitched with or add a metallic thread to give it a little sparkle. In diagram “B” the center Continental stitches can be done with a metallic thread and then brick bead a coordinating or different colored bead. In diagram “C” a variation of the Double Straight Cross is placed in the center. Here again by changing the thread you use in the center will give you a different look. Play around with your threads and give them a try!
