Week # 4

Hi everyone welcome to week #4 of my sewing project.  I learnt 3 other types of stitches. The whipstitch, backstitch and the blanket stitch from “How To Sew by Hand: 6 Helpful Stitches for Home Sewing Project.” The whipstitch blanket stitch is used to bring pieces of fabric together, while the backstitch can be used for embroidery. I practiced on this sheet to the fabric which I cut out from an old pillowcase. The stitches on the right are the blanket stitch, the bottom stitch is whipstitch, and the top stitch is the backstitch.

From “How To Sew by Hand: 6 Helpful Stitches for Home Sewing Project,” I learnt 6 types of stitches that I think will come in handy for future projects.

  1. Richelle,

    Great work on your stitches so far. I find it easy to see the difference between all of them since you are using it on the edges of a fabric. What do you hope to achieve by the end of this learning project?
