Fishbone Stitch

The fishbone stitch is often used to create and fill a leaf design or comparable shape. In order to work the motif, first a line of tiny dots is drawn down its middle. Then the thread is taken in and out of the ground material in such a way that a stitch is created that resembles a fishbone, and when made in a series creating the desired (leaf) design.
