Whip Stitch Tutorial

This photo tutorial is for the whip stitch, useful in sewing two pieces of felt together. Start by threading your needle, and tying a knot in one end.


1. Put needle through felt, from in between pieces.


2. Next, pull needle all the way through and put needle through both pieces of felt- slightly at a diagonal.


3. Continue this process, always putting your needle through the same side of fabric. Evenly space stitches- for a neater look.


4. When ready to tie off with a knot- put needle through last stitch to make a loop.


5. Put needle through loop- and pull gently until a knot forms.

OH my goodness. You have no idea how glad I am to have checked craftgawker tonight to find this post. Haha! I'm a total self taught sewer and that type of stitch was something I had been trying to perfect yet hadn't taken the time to actually try to research it. This totally saved me. Thank you thank you thank youuuuu :)
