In this video tutorial I show you how to embroider the Seed stitch.
The Seed stitch, also called Rice stitch, is used as a filler stitch. It is a simple series of straight stitches that are even in size and evenly spaced apart but going in random directions. It can be also worked in a uniform pattern when the stitches are all aligned in the same direction.
Depending on how dense your stitches will be, you can get a very light filling, or very heavy and textural. Also, you can play with colors – mix colors and make a confetti filling or use the same color as a fabric and get a simple, but textural look.
