MooshieStitch Monday: A Longer Woven Picot Stitch

Hey there! Remember when I showed you the woven picot stitch? Well, it got me thinking about stitching the woven picots a different length...

You see, the blue flower above from my previous post was stitched with a 1 1/4 inch pin.

I went to my local fabric store and found the longest pins available - which are 1 3/4 inch quilting pins.

See the difference below.

Here I used the longer 1 3/4 inch quilting pin for my woven picots.

Slowly adding more petals of the flower.

I stitched this with #5 pearl cotton on black cotton fabric.

Added french knots with white DMC floss for the flower center.

Can you see the difference in lengths of the woven picots as compared to the blue flower?

I love how this turned out and now I want to experiment more with different lengths of woven picots.

I am on the search now for longer pins... Let me know if you have seen pins longer than the 1 3/4 inch quilting pins.






Hi! I'm Michelle (aka Mooshie) and I've been stitching since 2007. I own more embroidery hoops than I will ever need and am a borderline hoarder of floss.

You can find me on my blog, MooshieStitch, Instagram, and on Etsy.
