Thanks for the tutorial. Your method is much cleaner than mine!


Wow, this is FABULOUS! Thanks tons for the clear how-to. I'll be linking.


I have to say the timing for this was perfect as last night I was looking at the Pixie and City tote patterns and wondering how I should do the slip stitch :)
Thank you for this :)


Thanks so much - this is very helpful!

This is a really great tutorial! So clear and easy to follow. By far the best I've seen for slip stitching. Thank you so much! I'm so glad I can finish all my projects correctly now!


I am making my first purse and came across your wonderful tips! This one is very timely and indeed brilliant ! Thank you!

I've been sewing for 5 years - and I NEVER learned how to do this. Thanks for your easy tutorial - I can't believe it took me this long!


I cannot thank you enough! I am tired of my "finished" lining looking terrible! I know I am the only one who sees it, but it drives me crazy!


You have no idea how much this helps! My closures were alway uneven! Not anymore. THANK YOU! :)


Thank you so much..

Terrific tutorial on the slip stitch. I've had the hardest time with this...and now that I've followed along with your pictures and instructions here, I have no idea why it was so hard before! Thank you for the tips!

Thank you SO much for this! I was finishing up a floor pillow for our living room and was just mucking it up until I remembered this tutorial and now it's perfection!


this is just a fantastic tutorial. even tho I have been sewing for years, and do a good job of slip stitching, I've learned a couple of tricks! Thanks so much. Going to bookmark this so I can pass it along in my sewing club.


That's a great idea. My closing never came out straight because I never knew exactly where to sew. This way you have a track to follow.
thanks for sharing!!!


Hi I liked your note, add your site to your bookmarks.


Thank you, it really makes a different on my sewing!


Good stuff … Your post is very interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing these information!
I will wait for your another knowledgeable comment.


This is wonderful! I just bought your bracelet bag pattern which linked to your tutorial...I'm so excited to try this method! My slip stitch closures are going to look SO much better!!


Thank you! I used this method for a pillow case and my hubby said it looked like we had purchased it from a store it looked so good ;)


I am smiling because I learned something new from you! I knew how to do the hand stitch you showed but the idea of the long machine stitches sandwiched between the back stitches was a great discovery. Thank you!
