Padded Satin stitch is a very effective way to define and emphasize an area in your embroidery. You can work padded satin in a shape of one color or jazz it up and give it a contemporary twist by changing color and thread.

Padding can be a number of techniques or you can combine techniques to get the effect you want. In other words, there is no hard and fast rules as to what you pad with. You can use stitches to pad Satin stitches, such as chain stitch, split stitches, small running stitches or straight stitch as I have in the demonstration example below. Another method is to cut out small felt shapes, baste them to your foundation fabric and then Satin stitch over them. You can also use other materials such wool, card or even plastic if you want a firm padding. In the sample above I have padded some of these stitches with knitting ribbon and in some places left the ribbon showing and left some of the foundation fabric blanks in order to create more interest.

Work the padding first. I worked about 5 long straight stitches using 6 strands of cotton floss.

Bring the thread up through the fabric and make a straight stitch.Take the needle to the back and bring the needle out very close to the stitch just made and make your second satin stitch. Continue to cover the shape.

Cover these stitches with Satin stitch.

Make sure you take the needle to the back of the fabric so you are stitching through the fabric not just wrapping the padding stitches.

Be careful to completely cover the padding evenly. When completed only the satin stitches should show.If the stitches too slack that they sag or too tight that they pucker the fabric use an embroiderers hoop so that you have better control of your tension.
