DIY Ladder Stitch or Invisible Stitch

From the blogger: "The ladder stitch or invisible stitch is the perfect kind of hand sewing stitch when mending holes in toys and sewing up the last little opening on newly sewn softies. It's even great for mending holes in clothing when you can’t sew from the inside of the garment. You’ll hardly be able to see this stitch from the outside of what you’re sewing, especially if you use a matching thread color. It’s just great! You can watch the video tutorial or scroll through the step by step photos."

Thank you for this free tutorial! I am not that good at hand sewing and always dread having to hand sew the last small opening on an item because I always know it is not going to look nice. This tutorial, however, is so good that even my sewing looked really professional on the last reversible bag I have just finished for an order. Theres a video as well as written instructions and toth are detailed, easy to follow and if this makes my sewing look good yours will look good too lol!
