Playing around with herringbone stitch

I am fascinated with herringbone stitch - it is so versatile.It serves you well as a filling stitch.

This was one of the patterns I embroidered on my bedlinen.

In India, herringbone stitch is an integral part of embroidery - especially kutch work.

You can do shadow work too with herringbone. This is the front and back of a shadow worked flower.

And even play around with it to make this
The body,wings ,head and antennae all are stitched with herringbone :)

Played with sequins and herringbone...

Liked this one the most
