How to do a stem stitch

Stem Stitch Example

The stem stitch is a pretty little one. It's a fast stitch that works with any thread on any fabric. Use it to create outlines and follow any curve with ease. Let's give it a shot!

  1. Bring the needle up through the fabric
  2. Then at a slight angle to the desired line go back down
  3. Bring the needle back up in the middle of the line you just made
  4. Just like before, match the previous angle slightly ahead of where the needle went down before
  5. Continue doing this pattern creating a solid rope
