Procedures in
doing the Whip
Stitch
Using Thread (Sewing)
Step 1
Thread the needle. Feed one end of the thread into
your sewing needle and draw the thread halfway
through. Tie both ends together into a knot.If you want
to camouflage the whipstitch, use thread in a
coordinating color. If you want the whipstitch to stand
out, use thread of a contrasting color.
Embroidery thread works well for this stitch, but any
thick thread can be used.
To tie the knot, try moistening your forefinger. Wrap
the thread around your forefinger once. Then use
your thumb to push the thread off your finger, twisting
it in the process. Finally, pull the end of the thread to
tighten the knot.
Step 2

Arrange two pieces of fabric on top


of each other. Make sure that the
edges you intend to sew together are
evenly aligned. The sides of the
fabric which you intend to be the
backend should face out so as to be
visible during the process. The thread
you use here will be more visible.Pin
or baste the layers together to hold
them in place.
Step 3
Poke your needle up through the top
layer of fabric. While looking at the two
layers of fabric from the side, draw the
needle up through the bottom of the top
layer, leaving the bottom layer
untouched.Start your stitch about 1/8 inch
(3.175 mm) from the end.[3] Also note that
each stitch you make should be 1/8 inch
(3.175 mm) away from your sewn edge, as
well.
By only piercing through the top layer, you
will draw the knot between the two layers,
thereby hiding it from sight.
Step 4
Poke your needle up through both layers
of fabric. Circle the needle around to the
bottom layer of fabric and pierce through the
fabric directly under your first hole. Draw it
straight through both layers of fabric, making
sure that it comes out in nearly the same
position as your first half-stitch.This is your
first full stitch since it connects both layers
together.
When you complete this step, the thread
should be wrapped around the edges of both
layers in an even stitch, forming a loop
around the outside of the fabric.
Make sure that the stitch is secure, but not so
tight that it causes the fabric to bunch up.
Step 5
Bring the needle up through both layers again at an
angle. Bring the needle back to the bottom of the fabric
and poke it up through both layers of fabric. Angle the
needle so that it comes out roughly 1/8 inch (3.175 mm)
away from the first stitch.This second stitch will
essentially cover the first stitch.
Pull the thread tight. When done, you should only be
able to see what appears to be one stitch, but the thread
should come out from fabric in a blank spot next to the
stitch.
Each stitch should be approximately 1/8 inch from one
another and from the edge of the fabric, so that each
stich is parallel.
Step 6
Make another angular stitch through
both layers. Position the needle beneath
the bottom side of the fabric. Poke it up into
both layers of fabric, beginning just beneath
the spot at which the thread is coming up.
Angle the needle so that it comes out
through the top another 1/8 inch (3.175
mm) away from the previous stitch.The
stitch itself should not appear angular,
however. It should run straight up and down
over the edge, parallel to the first stitch.
Step 7
Repeat the pattern as needed. Continue
making stitches that mimic the
previous one. Draw the needle up
through both layers, starting at a point
beneath the previous stitch and ending
at a position 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) away.
Do this until you reach the end of the
edge.Note that the majority of your
stitches will follow this pattern, but
your last full stitch and half stitch will
be different and will mimic the stitches
you made at the beginning of the
process.
Step 8
Create your final full stitch. For
your final full stitch, pierce the needle
through the bottom layer and draw it
straight up through both layers instead
of stitching at an angle. This stitch
should be made 1/8 inch (3.175 mm)
away from the edge of the fabric, just
as the first one was.
Step 9
Make a half stitch in between
layers. Poke the needle up through
the bottom layer again, in the same
spot as your previous stitch. Only
bring the thread through the bottom
layer, however, and not the top
layer.In this step, you are mirroring
the initial half stitch you created at
the beginning of the process. This
stitch will be hidden in between
both layers of fabric.
Step 10
Tie a finishing knot. Draw the needle
through the back of the last stitch you
made. Pull the layers apart slightly to reveal
the backside of your stitches. Open up the
pieces of fabric like two leaves of a book.
Wrap the needle through your last stitch,
creating a loose loop in the process.
Thread the fabric back around, twisting it
around the original loop. Then pull
tight.]This knot should also be hidden in
between the two layers of fabric.
After creating the knot, cut your thread to
free it from the needle. Trim it short so that
it cannot be visible from the front side.
Step 11
Flatten the stitches. Gently pull
the two layers apart, causing the
stitches to flatten evenly against
the fabric. This step completes
the process.

RUNNING STITCH
A simple needlework stitch consisting of
a line of small even stitches that run in and
out through the cloth without overlapping.
Procedures in
doing the
Running
Stitch

16
Step 1:
Begin the running stitch by poking
your threaded needle up through
the fabric.
Step 2:
Poke the needle back down
through the fabric next to where
you just came up, and pull the
thread down into your first stitch.
Step 3:
Now poke your needle back up
through the fabric, leaving a space
from the previous stitch. Then poke
the needle back down through the
fabric again making your second
stitch.

STRAIGHT
STITCH

STRAIGHT STITCH
This is the most basic of the stitches. To know how to
bring the needle in and out through the fabric is perhaps
the most essential necessities of learning how to stitch.
The following pictures will teach you any novice how to
do this. Straight stitch can be used in a variety of ways
to create different effects.

Fig 1: Bring the needle Fig 2: Put the needle in
out from the fabric, at a through a point B, as
pint A. shown. This creates a
single straight stitch.
CONCLUSION
Doing Stitches will help us to
understand and gives us the knowledge
to do the different stitches. It is the best
way to repair our clothes and using our
creative and imaginative mind to our
clothes.
