Before deciding on stitches to translate the marks the fabric was placed over paper shapes and rubbed with oil pastel. Purchasing a slightly coarse black cotton for this task I felt the weave would take the stitch detail and rub better than the smoother black cotton I had used for stitches in Chapter 9. Learning from my mistake of using too small a piece of fabric in the previous chapter a long strip was made.
For sample 4c the twists and turns of buttonhole stitch.For sample 4d chain stitch and open stitch were used.
For the ease of cross reference I have compared the original sequences below.

and now rubbings of the stitched pieces
