Bring the needle up through the fabric.
Take it back through to the back and point your needle upwards and then wrap the thread around the back of the needle and pull the thread through and this is your first stitch. Continue in this way.
Put the needle through to the back of the fabric, point it upwards and make sure the thread is at the back of the needle and then pull it through.
This is a great stitch to do around the edge of the fabric. Or if the stitches are closer together, it can be used around a button hole.
