how-to: back stitch

back stitch is my favorite stitch and the one i use most. it creates a continuous, smooth line, and is great stitch for outlines and text.

try to keep your stitches uniform in length (again, i like 1/8" - 1/4") and remember that you need to use shorter stitches when stitching a curved line.

as you stitch, you’ll be bringing the needle up a space (a stitch length) ahead, and then bringing the needle down to the end of the previous stitch.
