Creating Shapes:

You can create many shapes with straight stitching. Just remember, the pattern lines will show up perpendicular to your stitching lines. This design of concentric circles is called Karamatsu, or larch. For this pattern, stitch concentric half-circles on the fold of your fabric. Start with the outside circle. You can use the same thread for three or four of the same row of circles without having trouble pulling up the stitches. Then on to the next row of circles inside of the ones you just stitched, and so on.
