At Paraffle, we want to grow in a socially responsible manner. That's why we've designated some of our kits to various charities. At least 50% of the price you pay for these kits goes to the Charity.

Here at Paraffle we want to bring embroidery to as many people as possible.


It's why we (try to!) keep three blogs updated.


👩‍🏫 One for the basics.

🎬One for the stitches.

💡And one for inspiration.

Chain Stitch

 

 

Instructions (given in video):

 

Chain stitch is one of my favourite stitches - it adds some lovely texture and boldness to your lines.  It's great for lettering, too.
Note: this is the 'backwards' way to do chain stitch, but the outcome is exactly the same. I find it easier and use it all the time.
Instructions (given in video):
  1. Start with a tiny stitch - just a couple of millimetres.
  2.  Come up a stitch length away.
  3. Then, pass your needle through your original, tiny stitch, staying this side of the fabric...and go back down the hole you came up through. This is your first link in the chain.
  4. Continue - come up another stitch length away, pass your needle under the previous stitch, then back in the same hole.

If you've got any questions, add them below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
