TAST – Cretan & Chevron stitches

Four bookmarks

A little catchup with TAST. These will eventually become bookmarks, something sorely needed at my house. Inspired by Melinda Barta’s book, Hip to Stitch from Interweave Press. See Craft Sanity for Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood’s interview with Melinda.

The top bookmark is feather stitch and single chain; it finished really nicely on the back. The second bookmark is chevron stitch; I tried to make it look like stair steps. The third one is chevron stitch, with the horizontal lines stitched at different levels. The last bookmark is cretan stitch, varying the width and height of the stitching.
