I ❤ embroidery . . . The herringbone stitch used in hand embroidery creates a zig-zag line of straight stitches that overlap near the tip. The herringbone stitch can be used “as is,” or it can be dressed up with a bit of embellishment: The stitch works great in straight lines. It’s excellent for seam embellishments in crazy quilting, In the video, I’m working on even-weave linen, but the stitch can be worked on any fabric.
