It Works for All Types of Stitches!
Do you enjoy hand stitching but tend to achieve uneven results? A simple trick can make all the difference, helping you to easily produce evenly spaced stitches without slowing you down.
In fact, this is so easy it created a “Why didn’t I think of that?!” moment for us. May Chappell illustrates her technique in the following photo.
Simply mark even lines on your thumb and use those to space your stitches. May uses this for all types of stitches, but especially for blanket and chain stitches. Give it a try the next time you’re hand stitching.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
