Stem Stitch

Working from left to right, keeping the thread to the left of the needle and making small even stitches, similar to back stitch but the stitches overlap each other by a small amount. This creates a thicker line of stitching.

By repeating this stitch you can fill an area. When stem stitch is used to attach an applique design it is called outline stitch.
