Underwater scene 2


After completing the plants, I couldn’t wait to embroider a starfish. I’ve decided to use buttonhole stitch (blanket stitch) for this, worked with Anchor pearl cotton no:8 thread.


Divide each arm of the starfish into 2 parts and work buttonhole stitch from the mid-point, cover the whole right side to the tip. Make a small stitch at the tip before continuing.


Continue from the tip; cover the left side back to the mid-point. Work other arms the same way. I was in a dilemma, whether to leave the starfish as it is, or…….


Work buttonhole knots all around it as in the frilled buttonhole-knot stitch. This is not bad, is it? It looks like the starfish is swimming.
