Threaded Back Stitch (EASY Embroidery Tutorial)

The threaded backstitch is another EASY variation of the backstitch. 

It's a simple stitch turns the straight lines of  a backstitch into a wavy line. It takes just a little extra time to create this interlaced back stitch, but will add so much to your embroidery project.

  There are a few ways you can create variety with this basic stitch. First try the stitch in a single color.  Second, use different colors for a a distinct look.

Try changing up the stitch length to create smaller stitches or larger stitches. Or change up the number of strands of thread used in either the foundation back stitches, or in the weaved stitching for different effects.

The threaded backstitch is best used as straight lines or gentle curves in decorative outline stitches.
