Honey Bee tutorial cont.

Originally uploaded by Pinyon Creek Stitchin'.
Repeat the process and create two more stitches. You will then want to take hold of the the needle AND the stitches and pull the needle through the fabric and cast on's, closing the circle. This will create a little ridged loop over the fabric. Your thread will now be on the right hand side. You need to push the needle through the fabric at the base where the thread was originally brought up and draw the thread completely to the back. We will now need to switch to the yellow thread, so just "park" the needle and black thread to the side for a moment. Repeat this process with the yellow thread, only increase the number of cast on stitches by one stitch. Draw the needle and thread through to the back of the fabric, just as you did with the black thread and temporarily park this needle and switch back to your black thread.
