The ladder stitch is one of my favourite hand sewing tricks. If you’ve ever sewn a bag, cushion, soft toy, or even a lining on a garment you might have wondered how to get an invisible finish without any stitching sewing. I use the ladder stitch on my bumbag linings, on the collar stands of my husband’s shirts, in fact anywhere I need to close a turning hole in a sewn item. It’s an invaluable tool in your sewing arsenal!
Don’t be afraid of a little hand sewing, finish your projects with care and love!
