DIFFERENT STITCHES WE USE
Running stitch is also called a basting stitch. It is a long and straight stitch. In general, it is used as a basting stitch, which means people use this stitch for temporarily holding two pieces of fabric together. Running stitch can easily be taken out later.
The whip stitch is an easy hand stitching technique that you can easily learn. It consists of short stitches that are diagonal, and often used for hemming. The stitches are invisible on the fabric’s right side.
The catch stitch has a zig-zag pattern, and it cannot be seen on the fabric’s right side making it ideal for a blind hem. You can use the catch stitch for putting two pieces of fabric together with a little overlap.
This one is named after the kind of stitching that you see around a buttonhole. This stitch is to keep a woven fabric from unraveling. The buttonhole stitch is normally done on a blanket and it depends on the spacing. The stitches have an L-shape.
The slip stitch is normally used for making hidden seams between two-fold edges. This is also known as the ladder stitch because when doing this stitch, you create ladders using the threads. The slip stitch is used for closing a lining, binding, invisibly applying an applique, or closing something with stuffing inside.
The cross stitch is a kind of decorative stitch that is made up of two straight stitches that form an ex from the center. In general, it is used on a special fabric that has a grid made up of tiny holes which serve as guide to the pattern, and the stitch are series of exes that make a pattern.
The backstitch is normally used for attaching two pieces of cloths together. For instance, if you want to attach the sleeves on a blouse, the tailor uses the backstitch. The method is two steps going forward and one step going backward. When it is for embroidery, it from right to left.
