Have you heard of ‘ladder stitch’? It looks a bit like a ladder if you could see all the stitches! Most of the thread gets hidden away in the folds of the fabric and all you get to see are the ‘rungs’ of the ‘ladder’.
We use the stitch often to sew the gaps closed in softies or stuffed fabric items, and it can be used to sew fabric hexagons together and bindings down on the back of quilts. The stitch can also be used in certain beading projects.
