How do you sew Stem Stitch?

Stem Stitch is a beautiful, alternative stitch to create flower stems from, rather then using a back stitch, or split stitch.


Start by pulling the needle and thread up through the fabric, make one stitch. With your needle and thread underneath the fabric, bring the needle up through the centre of the stitch you have just created. Repeat as required.
