Sun Wheel stitch is a beautiful stitch that can be incorporated into many embroidery patters. If you have seen my buttonhole wheel, then you can see how similar both these stitches are. While we work the buttonhole wheel on the outside, for this sun wheel, we work it on the inside.
What you will need?
- Any fabric.
- Embroidery hoop, 15cm (6″) (Bigger if you are working on a larger design) ( You can purchase a set of 6 hoops from Amazon for your basic needs.)
- Tapestry needle
- Embroidery thread (You can buy this pack of 36 shades of the DMC embroidery floss.)
How many strands of floss do you need for making the Sun Wheel Stitch?
You can use all 6 strands of the floss. But if you are working on a finer design, then start with 2 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design. I have used all 6 strands for making this stitch.
