How to Embroider a Fly Stitch – video

How to Stitch Fly Stitch - a video tutorial from Shiny Happy World

Fly stitch is really similar to the lazy daisy – and just as easy. Use it to make little flies (really!) or join them together to make a nice vine.

I used fly stitch (with glow in the dark thread!) to make the fireflies in this Firefly Tree embroidery pattern.

      I’m glad it was helpful. 🙂

  2. Wendi,
    I love your videos and they have helped me so much. Recently they have been coming with no voice. Is anyone else having this problem?

      They all still seem to be working. Maybe it was just a temporary glitch?
