A great tutorial for hand sewn stitches


Sometimes I’m asked what kind of stitch you use, how to do running stitch,overhand stitch?
Actually sewing felt really don’t need advanced skills.
I found a great hand-sewn tutorial from this website:

I think these stitches are enough for beginners.

Back Stitch
This stitch can be as long or as short as you wish, this will depend you are using this for basting or to hold it in place.

Straight Stitch(Running stitch)
This stitch can be as long or as short as you wish, this will depend you are using this for basting or to hold it in place.

Open Blanket Stitch
This stitch traditionally is spaced the same in height as it is across. This type of blanket stitch is used as an ornamental stitch to secure and ornament the edges of woolen material.

Overcasting(Overhand stitch)
Overcast or overcasting is a long whip stitch or overhand stitch overlying an edge to prevent raveling. The other stitch shown underneath is straight or running stitch.
