The reason why there are so many types of embroidery stitches is to add depth and texture to your designs. Filling in a design with a satin stitch is going to look different than filling one in with an Otomí stitch. While the satin stitch is more common to use, give the Otomí stitch a chance because it's gorgeous and just as easy to do. Named after the Otomí people in Mexico, this stitch is a variation of the herringbone stitch, with a dense pattern of of stitches that overlap with each other. It's this overlap that gives it its unique look as a filler stitch. Wanting to give it a try? You'll be surprised at how simple it is and how quickly your designs will be filled in. This video will show you exactly how to do it.
