How to Whipstitch
In this Arts & Crafts video tutorial you will learn how to do Whipstitching. The video demonstrates how to stitch the bottom of a cloth basket to the sides of the basket. A whipstitch is a very basic stitch. Start at one end of the basket; attach the bottom to the sides with a pin. Pass the needle from the inside so that the knot is hidden. All you have to do is taking the thread and whipping it around the edge. At the beginning, give it a bit of binding stitch before stitching the rest of the basket. Just ensure that the edges are flush as you stitch around the base of the basket. At the end, put a knot on the inside and cut off the extra thread.
