Hand Sewing Stitches : How to Sew Baseball Stitches


So this final stitch that I’m going to tell
you about is called the baseball stitch, and it’s going to be very reminiscent to what
you’re used to, as far as when you look at a baseball. It has the stitching on it; this
is going to be exactly the same. So let’s say this is the front of your fabric. Let,
now I’m going to do it, and show you how it’s done. Okay, I’m going in the middle, and then
I’m going up an eighth of an inch on one side. In the middle, up in the middle, and then we’re going to
move up one-eighth of an inch, and then go back to that spot where we came in, in the
middle. So your needle is facing down,
and then you’re going to go up on the other side at the same; and then go back down to
where you came; move up an eighth of an inch. Then you’re going, once again, up an eighth
of an inch. And then up an eighth of an inch. Up an eighth
of an inch or this is, so you can see that familiar type baseball stitch.
And there you have it.

  1. I had a lot of trouble understanding what was going on. Do you think you could redo this tutorial with a more constant and visible angle of the needle? When your hand gets in the way it becomes difficult to see what's happening.

  2. Sorry you got this one wrong.  That is not how to do a baseball stitch.  It's way simpler than what you are portraying here.
