How to create a Running Stitch

Running Stitch

The Running Stitch is probably the easiest and simplest sewing stitch there is so it’s great for a first timer or for someone who wants to sew in a hurry.

It’s not a particularly secure stitch so it’s not a good choice for anything hard wearing – like fixing clothes.

You will need:

  • Material
  • Needle
  • Thread
