Seams "Stitching", "Russian" and "Chevrons"

The Seam "Stitching"

It is similar to the seam "back needle". Differs in the fact that the seam on the front side there are no gaps between the stitches are very close to each other (Fig. 20A). This seam requires careful execution. It is used for dense tissue. It resembles a machine line, and use it instead of the native lines, where it is difficult to perform (Fig. 20B).

Seam "Chevrons"

It runs in horizontal direction from left to right. Withdraw the needle with the thread on the front side and 1 make a horizontal stitch from left to right, capturing the 4 threads of the fabric. Then pull the needle in mid-stitch, and make a diagonal stitch the same length down and to the right. Make the bottom horizontal stitch to the end of the diagonal stitch was in the middle. Then again, make a diagonal stitch up and to the right. The next stitch should be the top horizontal. Under this scheme follow the whole series of chevrons (Fig. 22).
