I am back with part two of my seafood kitchen towel project. You may remember in part one I had hemmed the towel, transferred my seafood motif and selected my color palette.
I started stitching the swirly background ribbon - you can see in this close up that I used a Whipped Blanket Stitch. I closed the open edge of this stitch with the Back Stitch. I love the blue/green color variation of the perle cotton floss!
Also in this close up - you can see the lilac colored scallop shell. It is outlined in Stem Stitch and the ribs are done with Double Knot Stitch:
For the star fish, I am using the Blanket Stitch all the way around:
