Here’s another video tutorial for a basic hand embroidery stitch – the outline stitch. It’s another versatile, easy stitch!
The outline stitch is a lot like the stem stitch – only the position of the working thread is above the needle as you stitch – or, if you’re going upwards on your design, it’s to the left of the needle.
Outline stitch can be used for fine lines and it can also be used for filling by working rows next to each other. The noticeable difference between the outline stitch and the stem stitch is that the outline stitch forms a closer twist in the look of your line, so that you don’t see the separation in the stitches as clearly as you do in stem stitch.
