Learn step by step how to make the scallop stitch to decorate the edges of your crafts.
Materials to need:
- Fabric to use.
Join your fabric to sew. Pass the needle through the center between the two fabrics so that you are only passing the needle through one side of the fabric, so that the knot is fixed inwards and thus the beginning of the chain is not visible at the scallop stitch.
Pass it through the same starting point again, this time you are already joining the 2 fabrics, and pull the thread preventing it from closing completely but leaving a small loop.
Through that small hole you will pass the needle with the thread, but not through the front, but the back, and pull the thread to adjust. This way you already have your first scallop stitch.
At the second point you are going to do it the same distance, more or less half a centimeter. Pass the needle with the thread always from the back to, that is, the needle from the back to the front.
Now pull the thread, helping yourself a little with your finger so that the thread does not escape and the seam does not close, and again, pass the needle through the back.
In the same way for the next point. Find the distance to be the same as the distance from the first to the second point so that they are all equal. Pass the needle leaving a small loop, then stop the needle with the thread behind it and pull the thread to adjust. And so on until completing the stitching along the entire edge of your fabric.
When you reach the corner, make the points in the same place and continue. Pass the needle, leave a loop, pass the needle with the thread through the loop at the back and continue sewing.
And how can you see in the image, the seam takes shape and shape, and thus you avoid that the two fabrics will open. In addition, it gives a very nice finish at the same time.
