Butterfly Basket 4

Filed under: Butterfly Baskets

This is the fourth of  the Butterfly Basket series & is a “Pinsations” original design & stitch selection. The pin is added to the piece so that the pin can be removed, worn, & replaced. 

The flowers may be double layered cross. The basket is Criss-Cross Hungarian (same as Basket 1). I really like that stitch for the weave you expect to see in a basket & for shading although I used different threads (mix of DMC floche & a Vineyard Silk).  Not sure about the stem.

Books used:

  • Stitches To Go by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson.
