I finished this stitch on the side using Petite Silk Lame and Neon Rays. I love it!
Joseph from the Heartstrings Nativity set
These figures all come with a stitch guide. I tried the top stitch recommended by the guide. I thought it a bit too fancy for Joseph. I found the bottom one in one of my Canvas Embroidery books. I like it. In fact, the stitch on the green area of the cracker is from a Canvas Embroidery book. There are two volumes with tons of stitches. I use them both all the time.
