Fans seam treatment


Here is another seam treatment on my small kimono. I started out with the chain stitch in a serpentine curve, ready to stitch one of Sharon B's 100details, and then decided to try fans. I used cotton embroidery floss for the chain stitching, then rayon ribbon floss (Rainbow Gallery's Neon Rays) for the lines in the fan. The black is size 8 Pearl Cotton - straight stitches on the sides of the fan and a (short-tailed) fly stitch at the base of each fan. I really like how it came out. Hope you do too ...
