The Avid Embroiderer Presents - The Bean Stitch (Does not have a Stalk) and Halloween Design

I really love the Bean Stitch, it is mostly ignored in favor of using a Satin Stitch. Well, it is time to mix it up and start using both in designs.

The issue I have found is that it is difficult to find designs with the Bean because it is 'just another stitch.' It is not a design element except for the fact that it really 'pops' the stitches.

I have attached a sample from Great Notions of their bean font. 



I hope you enjoy working with this stitch, I have placed it on the freebie pumpkin. It is a subtle difference, but you just may find that you like its look.
