Stitch samples

I created loads of hand stitched samples of both  running and filling stitches. I used a neutral coloured thread so that I concentrated on the stitches themselves.

These are then sewn onto a background fabric using different stitch settings on my sewing machine, so they are clearly shown on the back of the fabric (image not shown). This was a good experiment, as I'd never used most of these settings!

I also experimented (and charted) the different effects of tension on my machine - something that my machine seems to lack! And practised with cable, whip and cording stitches.
