I’ll be the first to admit that I loathe hand sewing.  I hate it so much I will do whatever it takes to NOT do it!  However, any sewist worth their weight will tell you, there are some skills you need! The Ladder Stitch is one of them.

The ladder stitch is a pretty nifty way to finish an opening.  Whether it be a pillow or a belt this stitch comes in handy.  It’s a stitch that we’ll be using on the upcoming cardigan pattern.  Have you seen it?  It’s lovely and super fun and it’s coming soon.  Did I mention it comes in women’s and girls sizes? Oh yes, it’s awesome!!
