How to do it:
Follow the diagrams showing the different variations. This is one of the easiest, most versatile, and prettiest stitches you can do to add a smooth texture. It’s basically a group of straight stitches laid very close together. You can do it vertically, horizontally, or diagonally for different effects. Lay your thread smoothly and neatly, using your needle, your finger, or a laying tool to keep the thread flat. Uniform tension is important too, so one stitch isn’t pulling more than any other in your row or section.
