Seed stitch
Seed stitch

One of a family of detached stitches, seed stitch is useful for covering an area of a motif with pattern and texture

Seed stitch
  1. 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.

  2. 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.
