Basic Hand Sewing Stitches / Hand Sewing Types Of Stitches / Hand Sewing Techniques

Only hand sewing dates back to the very distant past, sewing and sewing machines have advanced a lot, but hand sewing will still be used. There are a lot of situations when hand sewing is used, for example tailors very often use it on the tailor's doll itself. Below we will present some basic types of hand sewing, types of stitch, when and how to use... 
Basting Stitch
is a basic stitch that serves to temporarily hold two layers of material until stitching is done on the sewing machine, it is useful to use a thread of strong contrast for easier removal.

Running Stitch
is essentially the same point as the Basting Stitch, with it being somewhat more densely distributed, usually the final safety knot is done at the end.

Backstitch - double stitch
A double stitch creates a very strong seam. It is often used on heavy and thick fabrics or to repair an already existing seam, when jeans burst suddenly ☺

Overcast Stitch - hem - hemming
This stitch is used when processing the edge of rarely woven materials prone to falling out thread

Slip Stitch or Ladder Stitch - hidden stitch
this is a kind of hidden stitch and is used when joining two folded edges of material, when sewing embroidered applications by hand ... etc

Blind Hem Stitch
There are special machines for the Blind Hem. Blind stitch and when done manually only a small part of the surface threads of the material is captured, so that the stitch on the other side is not visible at all.
This is not the end, there are many more types, shapes and ways of hand sewing.

Chain stitch 
is a sewing and embroidery technique in which a series of looped stitches form a chain-like pattern. Handmade chain stitch embroidery does not require that the needle pass through more than one layer of fabric. For this reason the stitch is an effective surface embellishment near seams on finished fabric. Because chain stitches can form flowing, curved lines, they are used in many surface embroidery styles that mimic "drawing" in thread...
