Here are the (admittedly, very simple) instructions for (again, admittedly, very simple) hand sewing stitches.
These were put together for the class we're teaching next week, but I thought some of you may want to know some basic hand sewing techniques, too, so I'm uploading this as well!
This is specifically meant to work with my Simple Bag Tutorial, but shall work for any time you're looking to sew something!
And, yes, because someone is going to point it out, that last one isn't an "applique stitch," it's just a modified whip stitch over the top, but that's a little more to explain to 12-year olds who may or may not have ever sewn before, so I figured, call it something simple and that be that.
So, please, anyone who wants to point that out to me shall have it pointed out that they are too lazy to read, and to please go away
Also, did I ever mention how much I <3 Illustrator? I'm starting to feel like I should have been a technical illustrator, and not a sewing person... alas XP

Geez. Thank you for making this!
How about one that shows types of ways to start or end your string? I was only ever taught one way to start a string (basically dredlock-rolling a giant random knot) and everything else I make up. So that would be helpful too, especially if there was small text saying what each stitch or knot are best for.
That's a lovely little tutorial right there - than you for taking the time to share this ^^
Thanks again. C: <3
These would have been SO handy when making my sister's steampunk bag, since it's similar in design. -.-;;
Shame you didn't include the saddle stitch... granted, it works best in leather but it's the one I most often use when sewing!!! God bless the saddle stitch!!!!!
AND WELCOME BACK TO DA!
I've moved btw... if u need my new addy for hair stickies. I hope that you are in better health, I always worry when you disappear ;_;.
Plus, it may keep people from being too afraid of it being difficult to hand sew
