Skill: Advanced Beginner

Instructions

  1. Step 1

    Take the bound off edges and line them up together.

  2. Step 2

    After you’ve threaded the needle, take your darning needle and insert into the center of the first stitch on your bottom piece of fabric. Draw the needle through going from behind the fabric toward you.

  3. Step 3

    Insert your darning needle behind the corresponding “V” stitch on the fabric piece above. Draw through going from right to left.

  4. Tip

    Make sure your thread goes over the top of the bound off edge, not behind.

  5. Step 4

    Insert your darning needle into the center of the same stitch on the bottom piece of fabric. Pull tight until the stitch is of a similar size to the stitches above and below.

Repeat steps 2 – 4 until you have seamed all the stitches together.
