How To Do Fly Stitch
The easiest and neatest way to do a fly stitch is demonstrated in this video.
I am now going to show you how to do a fly stitch. There is lots of variation in fly stitches. You can change the length and you can change whether they are going horizontally, vertically, you use fly stitch as fill stitch and it gives you a nice texture.
You can use lots of yarn so you get a thick flux or you can use just a single yarn, it completely depends on what you doing. First, I am going to show you, how to do a horizontal fly stitch. So you come up into the top line, I have drawn tow line's here, so that you can guide yourself.
And it makes you easy for you to see what's I am doing, and then I am going to back in, at the same point parallel to down, back up in the center making so that on capture my working threads. And that creates a little v shape. And then I am going to go back down to ankle that down.
Then I am coming up, with my thread out my way, going back down at the same point. Up through the middle capturing my working threads and then angling that back down, now I am going back through the fabric. Now you can do this really close together, so if I wanted to start at that, and have them much closer together.
To do a vertical, vertical fly stitch is exactly that you are just working down in a different way. Different directions and angling it back down, now you don't have to follow lines, you can make them random in side the design that you were filling. You can have them going different directions.
So, I could put one there and then I might want to do one. That direction, I am done but really on that rule, you can decide what really you want to do and be graded with the stitches. Another way of doing a fly stitch is to give it a little longer stem so when you come back over your working thread instead of going back down there, you can go back down further lower down.
So, you make a Y shape like that and finish off. We will need to do a knot, going to use the cheap method. This will be easiest and neatest way to finishing off.
And that's how you do a fly stitch. .
