The seed stitch is a great way to add texture and fill in a space. It is comprised of small stitches that go in varying directions, like confetti. The seed stitch can be overlapping or spaced apart. Here's how we'll use the seed stitch to embroider the Stained Glass Sampler embroidery pattern. Get the pattern here or join Pattern Club and stitch along with us. Watch the video then see the step-by-step tutorial below.
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.
