herringbone ladder – embroidery stitch tutorial
The herringbone ladder is a great embroidery stitch for embellishing borders like the hem of a skirt or t-shirt. If you have a double seam made by a sewing machine you can even use these established lines and stitch the loops around them. This saves you the extra step of making the parallel lines back stitch.
