Isn't blanket stitch a great stitch? This time I used it as bunting:
It took a bit of trial and error, but I got there in the end! Surprisingly, it seemed to work best with four stitches up to the point, a catch stitch at the tip, and just two stitches back down.
As you can see, colourful bunting was a must on this motif:
This is one of my favourites so far. Bunting is always fun, and I love the lines of the elephant, too. Plus, I think the cardinals are becoming the spirit animals of the project, the way they keep showing up.
I'll leave you with a final detail, before it's on to the next! Don't forget to check out all the other links at WIP Wednesday, too.
