Photos of Stitches

Close-up photographs of some of the stitches we used when we stitched up our own Bloom+Bee projects. Click on an image to enlarge it. These stitches are all available in our Bloom+Bee instructional video playlist. Most stitches were done with1-2 threads. Layering your stitches by working back to front will help create more depth. We encourage you to use what works for you and your stitching style!
