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.
