Modern Tutorials

Since these leaflets were originally intended to be used by teachers, I am including some modern tutorials since anyone downloading them probably won’t have a teacher to help.

Basting by Colleen G Lea

Back Stitch by Red Ted Art

Slip Stitch Hems and Folding a Hem by Angela Wolf

Hand Sew a Rolled Hem by Threads

This is slightly different to the instructions from the leaflet, but I think it’s easier to work.

How to Sew Buttonhole Stitch

A buttonhole stitch photo tutorial from Sarah’s Hand Embroidery

Overcasting by Colleen G Lea

Blanket stitch by Mary Corbet

Note: this is blanket stitch. The buttonhole stitch tutorial above is a different stitch. The names tend to be interchangeable in embroidery these days, but in garment sewing they are two different, although related, stitches.
