This is a very handy stitch when you are finishing off your stuffed toy, cushion, double-lined handbag and so on. It simply joins two folded egdes of fabric together. The final finish is clean and you cannot see the stitch as though it's become...invisible! All you need is your project, a hand-sewing needle, and thread.

First, thread your needle and make a knot at the end. Then insert the needle through one of the folded edges of the fabric about 1/4 inch and then pull the needle out. Now insert the needle through the opposite folded edge and after 1/4 inch pull the needle out. Go back to the first folded edge, insert the needle and pull out after 1/4 inch. Continue this zigzag pattern until desired length. Fasten off with a knot and trim the excess loose threads. If the knot is visible, simply tuck it in using the tip of your needle. Now you are done!
