Come up from the back one stitch length in from the end of your stitch line.

Stitch back and down at the beginning of your stitch line and back up One stitch length farther up the line of stitching.

Stitch Back Down through the Same Hole that You Started With

For Second Stitch, stitch back down through the same hole that you started with and come back up one stitch further down the stitch line.

our goal is to keep your stitches small and even.
