How to Embroider the Seed Stitch

Texture Terrarium Stitch Along Day 1: Seed Stitch

We'll be using the seed stitch to add the first textural layer to our terrarium ground. This stitch is a fun and easy way to create texture, plus there's no right or wrong way to stitch it!

The Stitch:

The seed stitch is a great stitch for beginners. It's comprised of individual stitches that go in different directions. Much like confetti or seeds, these stitches can be close together or far apart, long or short, and go in all different direction.

Watch the video below for how to embroider the seed stitch and scroll down for a step-by-step guide + information on how to join the Textural Terrarium Stitch Along with Pattern Club.

Step By Step Guide:

1. Start by bringing your needle through your fabric, from the back to the front, and make a short, straight stitch.

2. Next, bring your needle and thread a short distance away from the end of the stitch you just made and make another short stitch in a different direction.

3. Continue making short stitches in different directions to fill in your desired space. To add even more texture, you can overlap your stitches.
