I suppose I could go to my Youtube account and make one to upload here, but have not had the time. And, there are very many videos on youtube to help teach this stitch. I did not realize how very many different ways there are to do the stitch. And some make it a lot more difficult than it needs to be.
So, I am going to share where I got my patterns and whomever would like can get them and do the stitch like I did. For the Mermaid Scales bags I made (which is just a simple variation of the crocodile stitch) I used this:

It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to find nearly anything I need on Google. I found this lovely hummingbird applique recently at AllCrochetPatterns.net. It is perfect for what I need. I used my own pattern for the flower.
