How To: Sew by hand

Sew by hand

Watch this video to learn how to sew by hand! You need scissors, thread (or floss), a needle, and fabric. First, stick your threaded needle through the cloth and pull the thread through. To make a running stitch, push it back through to the opposite side. Your stitches should look like a dashed line. For a whip stitch, keep pushing the needle through the fabric from the same side each time, near the edge. It will wrap around the edge. To tie it off, push the needle back through the loop of a stitch, pull tight, then cut off. You can also separate the two threads and tie knots by hand. If you follow this video you'll be sewing up a storm in no time!
