How to Do a Double Whipstitch

Posted on: September 15, 2012

Thoroughly covering all of the seams and corners of your plastic canvas project is essential if you want it to look professional. No plastic should show. And your borders should clearly frame the piece you’re stitching so it really stands out when finished.

You can accomplish this by using a double whipstitch.

Surprisingly, many plastic canvas crafters simply don’t realize there’s no rule saying you can only stitch one time through the same hole. In reality, you can stitch as many times through the same hole as needed to cover all of the canvas in the seams and corners, and create well-defined borders.

Watch how it’s done on the video. When you’re finished watching the video, be sure to visit my Addicted to Plastic Canvas website for 5 FREE downloadable patterns! And visit my Etsy store to browse though over 1,000 patterns, including difficult-to-find, out-of-print classic patterns from Annie’s Attic, Leisure Arts and the Needlecraft Shop.
