Time to Rip?

I had visions of whipped spider stitches on the wings of these little bats, but after experimenting a few times this is the  best I could do (left side).  I'm not sure if it was the size of the wings (very small), or the curve, or just my lack of stitching ability, but it looks a little sloppy.  So, I think I will opt for the easy way (right side) by using slanted satin stitches and Hot Wire couched.

If anyone thinks the whipped spider can be done, please let me know and I can include it in the stitch guide as an option.  Meanwhile, time to get out the scissors.....


  1. Hmm. What thread were you using for the attempt at whipping the bat wings? I want to think it can be done. Wonder if I can find time to give it a go?

  2. I used Flair,for really good coverage, on both sides.
