18 - 16 Tie Stitch

Tie stitch is a decorative stitching technique. It must be used together with the flat stitch in the plain embroidery, and is usually used to embroider the claws of the poultry and birds, litchi shells, and more. For example, when a bird claw is embroidered, the flat stitch is used to make an outline of the claw, and the stripes are embroidered with the tie stitch. To make the stitch: first make a diagonal stitch the same width as the stripe on the design (fig. a), then use a spot stitch to draw the diagonal stitch to form a pointed angle (fig. b). Use the same stitches to tie the second claw angle, and continue the pattern for the remainder of the embroidery piece (fig. c). After all stripes on the claws are embroidered, make the short stitches by the side (fig. d).
