TASTy Fly Stitch

After seeing HelinaCQ's fly stitch and her comments about dancing fairies here, I had to try my own hand at some dancing fly-stitch people. These guys are made up of 2 fly stitches, one right side up and one up-side down, with their tie stitches overlapping, because, as we all know, stick people have a fatter "stick" for their bodies.... Don't they look happy?
Here, of course, is the obligatory fly-stitch-in-the-round, which makes a nice design. If you just used part of it, it seems like it would make a nice fan. I thought about weaving some fibers in and out of the straight stitches radiating from the center, but I'm busy with my encrusted class, so.....
Now you see that they weren't really happy, they were upset, because, you see, one of their kind has come undone.......

It's sick, but I love it! LOL! Those are such cute guys ('cause if they were girls, they'd have triangle skirts - my third graders told me so). Love your sense of humor.

Oh Lin, how clever. Do you think I could borrow that idea to teach my children's EG group the fly stitch?
I could make up a little story about them dancing the chicken dance and one person laughing his head off!! or something like that, they'd love it!! Well done indeed. Christine.

Christine,
Borrow away! That's why we post our ideas, isn't it, so we can share them and borrow them and change them and make them our own?
