Reluctant to try needlepoint eye stitches on your needlepoint canvas?
Don't, they are easy to do and deliver a huge impact.
Needlepoint eye stitches simply create a hole in your canvas because of repeated stitching through the same canvas hole.
They are very versatile stitches that can be used for borders, backing, design accents, geometric and flower patterns.
These stitches are slow to work and some can snag. They can deliver a wonderful texture often with a strong pattern. Eye stitches can also be combined with flower stitches or leaf stitches for a greater impact.
Which of the stitches you like the best? Share it with your friends and encourage them to try some new stitches.
Eye stitches can also be combined well with leaf stitches or flower stitches for great effect. Use some metallic or silk thread for added impact. Also, check out ANG (American Needlework Guild) for their interesting page of stitch of a month.
