Best Sewing Stitch for Sewing Clothes

This will be a very short guide. I want to show you how to sew the fabric by hand properly.

Will be useful for daily household chores – sew a pocket hole, sew a loose skirt file and other small jobs.

You don’t always need a sewing machine to sew a small project nicely.

I will use a LARGE needle and THICK yarn for this tutorial.



1. Let’s start quite simply. Make the first stitch as usual.

2. Make the next stitch by inserting the needle half a step back and pulling the needle out half a step forward.

3. Here’s what it looks like.



4. Make the next stitch halfway back and half forward again. To get it together, I try to insert the needle right in the middle between the newly created stitch and the pulled thread.

With this type of stitch, the fabric will hold firmly together – just like a sewing machine.

To make it easier to understand, I’ve also created a small video with this type of stitch on my Instagram. (If the video does not appear go to watch it on Instagram @ kremi.lv profile 🙂
