CHAIN STITCH:This ia one among the basic stitches.This stitch can be used both out line stitch or as a filling(also known as THAMBOUR).There are many variations in this like MAGIC CHAIN,DETATCHED CHAIN etc.
1)To start the stitch bring the thread out at the top of the line and hold it with thumb.
2)Insert the needle in the place where it emerged and bring the needle out a short distance away .
3)wrap thread around the needle and pull the thread.Repeat the procedure to complete the design.
This is one of my very old work done during my school days.I guess it must have been done during my 7th or 8th standard.
The one below was done last month for a pillow cover.I loved the design which i got from www.needlenthread.com.
