Tutorial; Bringing Thread to the Top

As I have started to write tutorials I have mentioned bringing your thread to the top before stitching. You want to bring your thread to the top to keep your project looking nice and tidy. Without bringing the thread up at times you end up with a knotted mess on the backside of your project which doesn't look very professional.

Here is a picture tutorial showing you how to bring your thread to the top.

1.  Pull the thread in the top needle.  Use your hand wheel and do one stitch.

2.  Pull on the top thread and it will bring the bottom thread up.

3.  Pull that bottom thread all the way up as shown.

4.  Slide both threads to the side and hold while making your first few stitches.
