The Bunny Project : Stitching The Tail

Find links to all the posts related to this project here

You are welcome to join me if you want to stitch along .

Next in line is Bunny's Tail.

2. The tail :


I have selected a dark brown color to stitch the tail.

The circular tail is stitched using Reverse herring bone stitch to give the shadow appearance.

I am posting all the steps in pictures below.

The thread used here is for illustrative purposes only . I am using 2 strands of DMC 6 strands thread for The Bunny Project

First one half of the circle is filled and then the next half .
So, we start in the center and work towards the sides.


Now , we start the Reverse Herringbone or the Double back stitch on the right side of the fabric 

The last stitch of one half of the circle

One half has been stitched using Shadow Embroidery

Starting the second half

Continue stitching in the similar way as the first half

The last stitch of the second half

The Shadow work completed on the circle

Back side of the work/ fabriC.
Weave the loose into the stitches on wrong side so as to avoid the loose end being visible from the front.

 The tail of the bunny is now finished

Happy Stitching.
