TAST Week Sixty-Seven: Raised Cup Stitch

This week's stitch for the TAST Challenge hosted by Sharon Boggon at Pin Tangle  is a really pretty little stitch called 'Raised Cup Stitch'.  It is exactly what it sounds like it is going to be and is a cute little raised cup.


It was quite a fiddly little stitch to embroider but it is worth the effort.  There is a base of straight stitches and the 'walls' of the cup are created by working another knotted stitch through these base stitches. Sharon's tutorial for the stitch is here.


I added three little pink 'cups' to the centre of one of my circles and I added three seed pearls to the centre of each of the cups.  It makes a pretty little flower.

  1. So sweet and could also easily be used for a nest with eggs. Very cute!

  2. It is very pretty. I do like working with a tapestry needle, but reading the tutorial I see what you mean about "fiddly"!

  3. Wunderschöne Arbeit, da steckt schon eine graoßartige Fleißarbeit drin. Süß die kleine Stickerei mit den Perlen, wie in einem Nest.
