Bead embroidery: Traveling stitch

traveling stitch

The traveling stitch is useful in projects in which there is a hard surface under the fabric, such as a button form. Because the needle has to go through the fabric at an extreme angle, the needle may exit the fabric quite a distance from the last stitch, making it necessary to take a traveling stitch to reposition the needle for the next bead-embroidery stitch.

To make a traveling stitch, sew up through the fabric after adding the previous bead. Without adding any beads, sew back through the fabric near the spot where the needle just exited, and sew up through the fabric again next to the previous stitch.
