Satin Stitch

A smooth, shiny sheen is produced on fabric using the hand embroidery technique known as the satin stitch. This particular filling stitch is stitched closely together to completely cover the region that has to be filled. The thread is laid flat on the fabric's surface as the individual stitches are done side by side. The result is a glossy, smooth surface that resembles satin fabric, therefore the name. See details

Fishbone Stitch 

A decorative needlework technique called the fishbone stitch produces a pattern of diagonal lines that mimic the bones of a fish. It is a type of surface embroidery stitch that can be worked in a number of ways, such as horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, to produce various effects.

The stitch is made by bringing the needle up through the cloth at the starting place and then lowering it again a little distance away to form a diagonal line. The needle is then lowered once more before being raised again a little bit further along. As a result, successions of diagonal lines are produced that resemble fish bones.

 A number of artistic effects, including textured backgrounds, leaf and stem details on flowers, and lines on geometric forms, can be made with the fishbone stitch. It's a flexible stitch that may be used to create designs in either long uninterrupted lines or short portions. Varied thread colors and thicknesses can give the design a different look and feel.

 The stitch is also frequently referred to as "herringbone stitch," which is a better moniker because it resembles the skeleton of a herring fish.

Spider web stitch

A colorful, geometric design resembling a spider web can be created by hand embroidery using the spider web stitch. The stitch, which is used to make detailed designs on textiles for clothes and the house, is normally worked with a tiny thread and a needle.

 The spider web stitch is made up of a number of tiny, tightly spaced stitches that are arranged in a circle around a central point. The web is made by working a sequence of tiny, closely spaced stitches in a ring pattern, each stitch spreading outward from a center point. The circular pattern's radius is raised as the stitching goes on until the web reaches the appropriate size.

 The stitch can be used to make detailed designs, including tiny spider webs, geometric forms, or even as a background texture. It produces a geometric pattern that mimics a spider web. Building different types of webs can be handled with threads of various colors and densities.

 Although it's regarded as a fairly simple stitch to master, it does require some effort to maintain regular distances between the stitches and to produce a tidy, even circular pattern.

Stem stitch

A hand embroidery technique called the stem stitch produces a continuous line of stitches that resembles a plant's stem. In embroidery, it is frequently used to draw the outline of leaves, flowers, and other objects. The stem stitch produces a line that is slightly raised on the fabric's surface, which can be utilized to produce a number of effects. See details

French knot

A little, raised knot is made on the fabric's surface using the French knot hand embroidery technique. It can be used to provide small, intricate accents or highlights to a pattern and is frequently employed as a decorative element in embroidery. See details

Kashmiri stitch

The crewel stitch sometimes referred to as the Kashmiri Stitch, is a hand embroidery method that imparts a beautiful, raised texture to the fabric's surface. It is a form of surface embroidery that is done with a needle, yarn, or thread and is frequently employed to produce intricate, finely detailed designs on textiles for clothes and the house.

 The Kashmiri Stitch is created by raising the needle above the fabric and lowering it just a little bit later. The needle is then lowered at a point that is only a little further along after being raised once more. This produces a stem stitch-like diagonal row of stitches. The Kashmiri stitch is stitched differently than the stem stitch, with the thread being coiled around the needle to produce a raised, textured effect. Depending on the desired level of texture, the yarn or thread can be twisted around the needle anywhere between one and six times.

 Intricate designs with flowers, leaves, and other natural features, as well as tiny geometric shapes, are frequently made using this stitch. It is frequently used in traditional Indian needlework, not just in Kashmiri embroidery. It can be applied to a variety of textiles, such as cotton, silk, and wool.

 Although the Kashmiri Stitch is a flexible and lovely embroidery technique, it may be regarded as an advanced embroidery technique since it takes some talent and experience to master the wrapping of the thread and maintain the tension while generating an elevated look.

Bullion Knot 

A style of hand stitching known as the bullion knot or bullion stitch produces a raised, spiral-shaped knot on the fabric's surface. Similar to the French knot, but with a longer and bulkier knot due to the spiral wrapping around the needle. Bullion knots are a decorative stitch that can be used in needlework to add small, intricate accents or highlights to a pattern as well as to simulate the appearance of a rolled rose or spiral curls.

 The thread is brought up through the fabric at the desired spot to form a bullion knot. While the needle is still on the fabric's surface, the thread is then looped around it numerous times. The wrapped thread is then pulled back with the needle as it is pushed back down into the fabric at the initial position. This results in a lengthy, elevated spiral knot on the fabric's surface.

 Bullion knots can be used to produce a wide range of forms and effects, including spirals, the center of flowers, and textured backgrounds. They can be used in a number of embroidery styles, including ribbon embroidery, crazy quilting, and surface embroidery, and are often done with fine threads like silk or rayon.
