Long or Straight Stitch

Where to use it:
  • Hair
  • broom bristles
  • grass
  • straw or hay
  • whiskers
  • insect antennae

  • Kreinik Braids (one strand)
  • Kreinik Silk Mori (one strand)
  • Kreinik Silk Bella
How to do it:
This is a straight, single stitch that can go in any direction, for any length. Don't be afraid of randomness of this stitch - it can actually give you freedom to create realistic looking images, like broom bristles or straw on a scarecrow. This is a stitcher's best friend when it comes to adding a bit of quick texture and interest; you can use it anywhere for detail that requires a straight line, and it adds a touch of interest to your embroidery.
