There is probably a proper name for this stitch but I'm calling it the T-Stitch. Simple to do and perfect for indicating veins on leaves, I've used it on this pineapple top. (Looks a little like a bad hair day on a Muppet.)Pineapple is from my new pattern series called Folk Art Fusing.
Here's how I make my T-Stitches: Bring the needle and thread up at point A and re-insert the needle into the fabric at point B which is about 1/4" up from point A. Now bring the needle and thread up at point C, about 1/4" to the left of point B. Reinsert the needle at point B and scoot the needle under the fabric to point D, 1/4" to the right of B.
Draw the needle and thread through point D and re-insert the needle back into point B. When you draw the thread through the fabric you have a T! These T's are also perfect to indicated cobbles on cobblestone street like that inHouse on the Roadalso a new pattern.
