TAST 52 - Triangular Feather Stitch

I bought one of those doodle colouring books for kids from the pound shop. You know the type - it's filled with spirals and geometric patterns to colour in. It looked like it could be a good source for embroidery pattern ideas.  Anyway I found a nice pattern with triangles which I decided to use for the triangular feather stitch.  I thought that the triangles in the pattern would echo the triangles in the stitch, but I think that maybe I should have made the whole thing bigger to accentuate the triangular shapes more.

It was quite nice to stitch and I really like the effect.  For more details about how to work the stitch and to see how other people have interpreted it pay a visit to Pin Tangle.


  1. Wow, I love your interpretation, Lilian!

  2. That's what I call a well spent penny (or pound)! Great design and you have worked the stitches beautifully!

  3. what a great idea Lilian, your stitching has worked so very well
