1. Draw the stitch line and decide the length of the stitch. Using embroidery floss thread through the wrong side and bring it to the right side of the fabric where ‘your desired stitch length’ away from the starting point. The thread will be visible from the right side.
2. From the visible thread go back to the starting point and poke through.
3. Bring it to the next stitching point, using a similar length as before. Make sure your next visible stitch’s length is similar as the first stitch. Your floss will be visible from the right side.
4. To make the second stitch, poke through right next to the first stitch and bring it to the other side like before.
5. Repeat this process until finished. Tie a knot from the wrong side.
1. Using embroidery floss, needle up to the point where the knot is placed, through the wrong side and to the right side of the fabric.
2. Wind your floss 2-3 times.
3. Make sure to maintain tension of the wrapped floss. This will prevent it from going loose. Poke through right next to the knot point.
4. Repeat this process for the remaining knots. Then finish the back, tie a knot and cut off the excess floss.
