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.
