Basque stitch peacock


I wasn’t feeling well for the past few days, so I hope that I’m not too late for this week’s TAST challenge. Today, I’d stitched another peacock, this time using Basque stitch for the feathers.


The body is herringbone stitch.You can add as many layers of feathers but make sure that you work the topmost feathers first and then the layer below it and so on till you reach the bottom layer.This will make the layers overlapping beautifully.


This is another trial – a combination of buttonhole wheel and basque stitch, worked continuously.The tutorials for this and another one, done on shisha/mirror are coming soon!

  6. Great idea for a peacock! It looks so good, and I can just imagine the tail done with a variegated turquoise/green/purple thread!
    I like your basque/wheel too!
