The simple fly stitch

Fly stitch is made by forming a  horizontal loop and then pulling the loop and holding it down with the help of a small straight stitch. The thread is looped under the needle as can be seen in the picture below.

This is a closely made continuous fly stitch used as a filling stitch. 

Usually, they are used as filling for leaf shapes because of the vertical stitch in the middle of the fly stitch; when done continuously it looks as if it is the vein of the leaf.

You can make it slightly loose or as close as satin stitches.
Make very narrow fly stitches at the top, then progressively become wider and then when you reach the middle narrow down stitches till the bottom of the leaf shape.

This fly stitch is made so that the loop of the stitch is twisted in the middle where the straight stitch is made. It looks like a small cursive letter r.

It is made in the following method as in the picture. Here you do not make the straight stitch as in the regular fly stitch, you should loop the needle and then make the straight stitch.
