Catherine Jordan and Sheryl Borden discuss Reversible Cross stitch on Creative Living

On the third clip from this series of Creative Living with Sheryl Borden(KENW), designer Catherine Jordan shows examples of reversible cross stitch embroidery. Catherine demonstrates how to work a straight line which is reversible with the double running stitch and work a reversible cross stitch. There are examples on linen, linen banding, and stiffened felt; a matching bookmark and coaster worked as reversible crossword puzzles are shown, cleverly designed so that the words are not identical on the front and back. A variety of black work bookmark examples are shown.
