Leslie Rogalski is here to teach you how to do the flat herringbone stitch. Watch as Leslie walks you through how to weave your thread in and out of the seed beads on a helpful diagram. Then, Leslie creates a flat herringbone stitch with a colorful Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend so you can see the technique in action. Click here for a helpful PDF diagram that you can print out and use to master this stitch.
Note: This method of the herringbone stitch allows for a thread-free edge. However, it does alter the stitch so that the two outside rows lose the "V" formation typical of the herringbone stitch. For an example of another method of achieving the herringbone stitch with thread on the edge, check out this Learning Center idea.
