How To Do Running Stitch

Similar to back stitch, running stitch is great for straight lines and outlines, only it's a dashed line. It's also great if you want to make something with a drawstring on it!

Here's how ya do it!

  1. Bring needle up at A and re-insert at B. Pull through to the back of you work (photo one)

  2. Bring needle back up at point C, leaving a gap between point B and point C, and re-insert at D (photo two)

  3. Bring needle up at point E, leaving a gap between E and D, and re-insert at F (photo three)

  4. Repeat as necessary
