TAST 2013 - Sailors Edge

I had visions of stitching little boats among the waves for this stitch.  However, those bottle caps are just too small.  I tried to make little applique boats but gave up in frustration and ended up with bead flowers. I added extra detached chain stitches, beads and french knots around the base.  I do like this stitch and will have to think of a way to use it again.

The idea of boats bobbing up and down on the waves of the Sailor stitches is great. Please make use of the stitch in a project less fiddly than the bottle cap pin cushions.
Keep up the good work!


Even if it didn't work as you intended, it's turned out very prettily..

Im not 100% happy with it but it will do.
