Hand sewing is a skill that everyone needs, whether you have a sewing machine or not. When I found this invisible stitch video tutorial by OnlineFabricStore.net on YouTube, I knew I needed to learn this great stitch for future projects. This stitch is excellent for sewing together the opening of anything that you sewed right sides together, such as a pillowcase. The invisible stitch resembles rungs on a ladder and when you pull the thread the two sides of fabric come together perfectly.
Materials For Invisible Stitch:

In this invisible stitch video tutorial by OnlineFabricStore.net on YouTube, you will learn how to sew one of the most useful stitches in the world. You begin by ironing your fabric to get a smooth defined edge.
Then, you just follow the simple instructions in the video tutorial to make a ladder stitch that becomes invisible when it is pulled taught. There is also a very clever trick at the end, where you hide the knot and the end of the thread when you finish.
This is a very helpful stitch to anyone who sews. Hand sewing is still necessary for the finishing touches to many machine-made items. I used this stitch on some pillowcases I made recently. The pillowcases were sewn right sides together and when I turned them right sides out, I used this stitch to make my final closure in the gap I had left to do the turning out.
