together. Insert threaded
needle into folded edge and
poke it back out one stitchlength further. Slip needle
through opposite fold, slide it
one stitch-length inside fold

and poke it back out. Repeat
until seam is closed. Pull stitches snugly so folded
edges meet and thread doesn’t show. Great for
closing stuffed objects.

marks on fabric. I prefer to slightly clip the seam
allowance where possible to show the placement of
a mark. My second preference is to mark the location
with a water-soluble marker. Third, I use tailor’s tacks—
with a needle and thread, stitch a loose stitch for
each mark. Leave a long tail of thread so thread mark
can be removed when project is completed. Other
methods include chalk, pencils, tracing wheels or pins.
T o p - St i t c h - A stitched line that
runs parallel to a fold or seam.
Top-stitching is decorative, but it
also helps hold layers of a project
together. Sometimes a double
needle is used and/or thicker thread.
W h i p - St i t c h - Join two pieces by
stitching from one to the other with
the needle perpendicular to edges
being joined.
