overcast method / stitching notes

thread your needle and knot the end of the thread. you can use a single or double thread. a single thread with tiny stitches will be fairly invisible. i like the stitches to show on the front a bit so i use double or heavier or sometimes contrasting thread. stitch toward you, pull the stitch snugly, keep moving to your left bringing the needle back to the far side and through both layers toward you. sew to the end of the piece. take an extra stitch in place at the beginning and end to secure your corner.
