As your stitching journey nears completion, the art of backstitching comes into play. For linen threads, aim for 2-3 backstitches; for polyester, just one suffices. A touch of finesse lies in starting backstitching from the beginning, ensuring a seamless transition and adding symmetry to your creation.
Begin your stitch by creating holes for the starting point. The first stitch mimics the beginning: the left needle forms a T, and after passing the right needle through, thread the left needle through the loop on the right side before tightening. Witness the expanded space, allowing easy parallel pulling of the threads.
Normal backstitching aligns the threads, occasionally requiring gentle guidance with a pricker or needle. In our concise guide, we demystify this critical phase, elevating your hand-stitched creation to a symphony of precision and elegance.
