TAST 61 - Up and Down Feathered Buttonhole

I had real trouble with this stitch at first. I just couldn't get it to sit right. So I went back to practise (stitch 3) Feather Stitch and to learn (stitch 26) Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch (I found Mary Corbett's video for UDBS really useful). After that it all went much more smoothly.

This sampler is made up of all three stitches.

For further details about TAST or to see the list of all the stitches so far head over to Pin Tangle.


  1. stitch looks beautifully stitched, would not have known you had had a problem with it.It is buttonhole double chain no 69 that I still cannot work out how to do.

  2. you may have had trouble with it, but it's very effective, and looks wonderful

    1. Thanks Jane. It was fun once I got the hang of it.

  3. I like this stitch but it is a bit studious to make. I agree with you, when a stitch is very difficult, Mary corbett's video are very useful

  4. Good for you for not giving up. Looks like a great stitch to know.


Thanks for stopping by. I'm always thrilled to get feedback and appreciate you taking the time to comment.
