How To Sew A Hidden Stitch: Beginners Instructions
To begin, make sure that your fabric is correctly prepared and pinned before beginning sewing. Next, take your needle and insert it into the fabric at about 1-inch (2.5 cm) from the edge. Make sure that the thread line up along the edge of the fabric so it is easy to thread the needle through. Gently pull the thread back through the fabric and continue until you reach a regular stitch length. (You will know if you’re in hidden-stitch territory when your thread does not show on either side of the needle.)
Next, sew off your invisible seam allowance by slowly pulling the thread through a hidden stitch until there are about 3 or 4 stitches left over. Now, begin sewing along a straight line – no curves or angles! Just straight stitches. Once this is complete, take a pair of scissors and cut just above where you started sewing and clip off all excess threads that may have been left behind. The result should be a clean seam line with no visible stitching showing on either side of the needle.
If you have a good eye and can demonstrate that you understand the invisible-stitch concept, it may be possible for your teacher to incorporate this technique into your machine quilt class.

In this blog post, we are going to show you how to sew a hidden stitch. This is a great stitch for creating a professional finish on your sewing projects!
Before we get started, it’s important to understand the difference between regular and hidden stitches. With regular stitches, the fabric is visible while you sew it together. With hidden stitches, the fabric is covered up while you sew it together. This can be really helpful when you’re trying to hide mistakes or seams.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Start by cutting out your desired shape from your fabric. We recommend using a template if you’re not confident in your cutting skills.Once you have your shape cut out, start by Sewing the fabric together along one edge of the shape. Make sure that you leave a 1-inch opening at the top and bottom of the shape so that you can turn it right side out later on.(You can use a ruler to help guide your stitching.)
2. Next, Sew the opening closed using a zigzag stitch or a straight stitch. Make sure that you backstitch at both ends of the seam so that it’s secure.(We recommend using a thread of a contrasting color for this step to make the opening more visible.)
3. Next, turn the shape right side out. This is easily done by forming a small crease in each bottom corner and then tucking them under.
4. Once you’ve done that, pinch the corners with your fingers to help it form a nice “point” or pointy shape.
5. Then, press down evenly on all four sides so that it stays nice and flat again. You’ll have something similar to this:
6. Now take a piece of clean scrap fabric and wrap it around the project at least 3 times so that it’s fully covered (if you plan on hanging your picture up later on).
7. Finally, pin everything down securely so that it doesn’t move while stitching.Your shape is now complete! You can take it off the scrap fabric and hang it up, or you can just leave it lying on top of your pillow and not worry about covering it up with a piece of fabric. If you do decide to cover it later on, then just make sure that you put a minimum of two pins down for every seam so that the seams don’t come undone.
