This Top Stitching for Beginners video is a must-see for those who are new to sewing. Top stitching is the kind of stitching on a sewing project that you can see. The most prominent and popular example of top stitching in your day to day life is the visible stitches on your jeans. Top stitching is a fantastic way to add just a hint of décor to your projects. This stitch can be functional, too! A top stitch can often be used to help hold two pieces of fabric together as well as bolster or strengthen other stitches on your sewing projects. Check out this how to top stitch video for everything you need to know about this fun use of functional stitch flair.

I use a straight stitch for most of my sewing projects sometimes even when pattern does not require it because I think it gives that sleeve or neckline a pretty finish on some projects. I always use it on my tote bags or purse. I have not used the decorative yet but I am wanting too. This is a must see video for anyone wanting to do a top stitch for a pretty finish. Anyone have any finished pictures of their projects finished with the top stitch? A great tutorial and video well made.
