I know everyone’s eager to get on the machine – but sometimes you have to do a bit of handwork and this is the most basic hand sewing stitch there is. It’s not tricky and it actually goes much faster than you’d expect. And once you get the hang of it you can sew ANYTHING ANYWHERE. Really. Clothing, quilts, toys, repairs – you can do it all with just a needle and thread.
Just grab a scrap of fabric and a needle and thread and practice some hand sewing. Once you get a feel for the stitch – try to make something! You can sew any pattern by hand. 🙂
