Yesterday, in Part 1 of this tutorial on How to Create Custom Stitch Patterns, I shared with you how to create your own custom design patterns. Today, I am going to show you how to expand upon the skills we learned in Part 1.
All of the custom patterns in today’s lesson are all derived from the very same original base 3 stitch pattern we used in Part 1.
Here are a few more:
Now we can begin to further modify these new custom stitch patterns by adding more detail. For example:
And we can take these new stitch patterns and apply the lessons we learned in Part 1 to make even larger, more complicated stitch patterns. For example, using the second design pattern above we can create the following:
Here are a few other inspirational custom stitch patterns to get your creative juices flowing. Remember, these were all created using the simple 3 stitch base pattern we started with in Part 1. The possibilities are truly endless.
Now in these next few stitch patterns, I did the inverted the stitches and white space.
Now let’s start using some of these stitch patterns as repeating building blocks to create decorative stitch pattern rows.
Again, using the skills we learned in Part 1, we can now create frames or borders for our custom stitch patterns.
Again, the possibilities are endless as we continue to build upon the stitch patterns we’ve created.
With the few simple skills we learned in Part 1, and using a very simple base stitch pattern, you are now know how to create your own custom stitch patterns.
