Terrific Tip Tuesday: Even Stitching


Who’s a fan of hand stitching? I find it relaxing. Sometimes my perfectionism and my desire for a mindless activity have trouble meeting at the same spot. So here is a great old trick for perfect even stitching!


Mark even stitches on your thumb to follow as you hand stitch. This can work for all types of stitching. I especially like it for decorative stitching, such as a blanket stitch or chain stitch.
