LHQ - Hand Sewing - Invisible Stitch

LEFT-HANDED QUILTING - Hand Sewing - Invisible Stitch

Note - these instructions are written in LEFTISH.
If you are right-handed - just reverse the directions.

Here’s another cool little stitch I used to sew up the open side on the “envelope” - style coaster -

It’s an invisible hand stitch.

Slip your needle in “under” the seam allowance on the inside –
To hide the quilter's knot

Make sure the needle comes “out” at the bottom fold -
Then go straight across and “in” at the top -
Point needle at an angle to come “out” again at the bottom a little bit away

Take another couple of stitches

Then another couple of stitches
See the thread on the left?
That is the point where the ladder stitches end

Do that all the way to the end -
Then sew a couple of stitches on top of each other to end it -
Clip the thread –

The first bunch of stitches were done using the ladder stitch –
The last bunch of stitches were done using the invisible hand stitch -
Can you see that last bunch of stitches?

NO?? - well – that’s EXACTLY what we want – isn’t it??


Talk to you later – gotta go – gotta sew –
