outline stitch Outline Stitch

Adds definition by outlining object. Also used to create stems, branches, etc. Stitches are worked from left to right and stitches are slightly slanted. Also called stem stitch.

overcast stitch Overcast Stitch

This stitch has more depth because the embroidery thread is stitched over an underlying thread (shown in grey). Used for making stems and outlining objects. The thread that will be covered is brought up at the starting point along with the embroidery thread. Hold the thread to be covered with one hand, being sure it stays on the lines of your design. Use small, straight stitches to secure underlying thread to project fabric.
