Fun Fur from 1887

Thanks to Needlepoint for Fun's newsletter, I discovered this blog written by the Engligh embroiderer Sue Jones featuring a tutorial for replicating a Victorian fur stitch .  It is from an 1887 publication called "Dictionary of Needlework" that has been republished by Dover.  I don't think herringbone stitch is particularly easy to do but this would be fun to try if you need neat rows of fur.

You can sign up for the wonderful newsletter from Needlepoint For Fun on their home page.
