One of a family of detached stitches, seed stitch is useful for covering an area of a motif with pattern and texture
Bring the needle up through the fabric and down again a short distance away, in the direction you wish the stitch to lie. Seed stitches look best if they are kept quite short.
Bring the needle up through the fabric again, a short distance from the ﬁrst stitch, and make a second stitch facing a diﬀerent way. Repeat this, making stitches evenly spaced and facing in diﬀerent directions.
