Pass thread from from front to back.

Pass thread through to back and front again - the needle passing through the fabric in one step. Draw thread through. You have made a running stitch.

It will not take you long to master this. Soon you will be making multiple stitches in one step.

...carry on...


Pull fabric regularly after drawing thread through to avoid puckering.

Note: The cloth used in this project is fairly stiff. Its a calico slub with backing. The puckered look in this case is intentional.
