HOW TO HAND-SEW | THE SLIP STITCH

The slip stitch makes a neat, strong hem. I often use it to stitch linings, facings or waistbands to zippers.

HOW TO:

1. Fold up the hem as desired. At the right-hand side of your project, bring your needle up through the upper folded edge. From right to left, make a tiny stitch through the main fabric. Make sure to only pick up a couple of threads so that the  stitch barely shows on the right side.

2. From right to left, slip the needle through the folded edge of the hem and make a stitch.

Repeat until you are finished.
