What fun! I loved doing this stitch and love the effect! The Laced Running Stitch is an easy variation on the running stitch, but looks like you did a lot of work. It is also referred to as a threaded running stitch. By lacing a second thread through the basic running stitch, you create a wavy line that is perfect for an outline or decorative stitch for both your embroidery projects or embellished garments. The second thread can be the same color and thread, or use a different color or different weight of thread for different looks. The thicker the thread, the more wavy it will appear.
It is similar to the whipped running stitch, and can be done as a double laced running stitch. Stack rows of the the stitches close together to form a great design.
Try this stitch on monograms mixed with a stem stitch or back stitch – perfect on a small zipper pouch, baby bandana bib or even a kitchen towel or pre-made coaster. Make your gifts custom and special with a touch of embroidery.
