Magic bobbin edging stitch


Fancy bobbin edging stitch is a variation of buttonhole stitch. Thanks to Sharon Boggan for introducing this stitch on TAST. I tried this using twin needles. As magic chain stitch, this too is fun filled. A wonderful decorative stitch for needlepoint edges,piling two layers and necklines.


you can create beautiful variations by altering height of each stitch.
let's do magic bobbin edging....

Do the stitch from left to right...
Take two needles ,each threaded with a different colour.
Step 1: take out needle 1 piercing the fabric. hold the thread firmly with one finger.
Step 2:take out needle 2 adjacent to needle 1 , hold this thread above by leaving behind the previous.
Step 3: make a buttonhole stitch with needle 1 and hold this thread firmly underneathi
Step 4:without piercing the fabric do loop stitch with needle 2 along vertical leg of first stitch and hold the thread.
Step 5: take out needle 1 adjacent to first stitch and hold the thread.
Step 6: make a buttonhole stitch with needle 2 and hold this thread firmly underneath

Repeat from step 1 again
