stitch along book cover - final post

stitch along stripey tights

Boots

I started with her boots here.  Two strands of Anchor 169 and backstitch all the way around.  If you are doing the red girl then the boots outline is two strands of Anchor 360 brown.

Next two strands of Anchor 168 and fill those boots with back stitch.  The brown boots are filled with beige DMC 452.

Legs

Still using two strands of Anchor 168 outline her legs.   The red girl has a red outline to her tights, two strands of red 304.

Now to make the stripes

Stripes

I took two strands of Anchor 928 and made single stitches up the legs evenly.  For the red girl the first stripes are red DMC 304.

Full stripes

Now take two strands of grey Anchor 398 and pop stitches inbetween the first ones to make stripes  The second stripes are ecru on the red girl.

Double stripes

And that's the girl done

Whole

Although I still have a couple of lists to pop in at the bottom where I forgot to draw them!

I hope you've had fun stitching her.

Next Sunday I will pop the tutorial for making the book cover.
