Another hand embroidery stitch that’s great for beginning embroidery – the whipped running stitch. It’s a simple, quick stitch to work. This stitch is one of many line stitches that can be used for bold or delicate outlines, depending on your choice of thread.
The whipped running stitch looks great when using two colors of thread, as I did in this video tutorial. However, if you want a solid line out of one color, you can use it for that, too! You can change the look of the stitch by varying the spacing of your running stitches. To learn how to work the running stitch, you can check out the video tutorial or read the illustrated instructions.
If you want to see some examples of whipped running stitches in bold colors, you can explore the article on embroidery for children. This is a simple stitch, and kids especially love it – but it isn’t limited to kid use! So have fun with it!
