Step 4: Running & basting stitches.
You'll want to start by threading your needle in one of the two ways I've taught you. Knot the thread end(s).
For the running stitch: bring your needle up through the fabric from the back (or wrong side, whichever lingo you prefer) until the knot hits the fabric. At this point, you'll simply make a stitch to the left or right of where the thread came through. Then bring the thread back up and start all over again!
For the basting stitch: simply make longer stitches, between 1/4" and 1/2" in length! These are the pink stitches in the first picture. :D
Pictures will make this easier. Follow along, now!
Keep in mind that running and basting stitches should look the same from both sides.
