Chain/Whipped Backstitch Combination



This stitch combination was used to create three of the black stripes in the cheeks of Barry the Tiger, as described in point 7 on page 60 of the Animal Portraits book. Whilst the project is worked with small chain stitches accompanied by a single backstitch on each side, the video sample and the guidelines provide instruction for both bigger chain stitch (with two backstitches per chain) and smaller chain stitch (with a single backstitch per chain).  There is also a downloadable and printable PDF document with the same instructions and illustrations, as well as a templates for the working samples. The 5¼ minute video tuition clip is filmed in high resolution and comes with voice over instructions to guide you through the learning process.
