Running Stitch - Whipped

Ladies, this is such a simple stitch that it hardly needs any description.  I think the pictures will almost speak for themselves.  Just about anyone who embroiders or sews will know what a running stitch looks like.   The whipped part of the stitch is just a little addition to embellish the running stitch.

Naturally, working from left to right with this one for us lefties :)

You can either use the same colour thread or a contrast one as I have used to embellish your running stitch.   Just weave your thread in and out as in the photographs.

In order to make the stitch look different you can space the running stitches as close or as far apart as you like. 



  1. I'm dying to learn how to stitch, hopefully when I move back to the states I could get in track and take some classes. I live in Germany and due to the language barrier for me is hard to find a place to take classes in English.

    I found your blog through bloggy moms, and I would like to extend you an invitation to Blog of the Month Busy Mom Monologues. This is a great way to get your blog out there. Here is the link if you are interested: http://bit.ly/1sL2UV0

  2. Thank you Remy. I will certainly take a look.
