Another project in progress

Do you do chain stitching when you are creating?
What's chain stitching?
When using the sewing machine, especially for quilting the same type of pieces over and over, sewers use a chain stitch method.  

Groupings of pieces are sewn one after the other, without cutting the thread between each one.  
Look closely:




These are a grouping of Santa ornament pieces all sewn and set for final stuffing and decoration.


Will show you the finish product later this week! Stay tuned!

Sounds like a smart technique :)

I've done it before, but only because I was too lazy to cut the thread lol. Looking forward to the finished product!

I'm a quilter so I've done a lot of chain stitching. Saves a lot of time and thread.

I have never heard of that before.

Ooh.. I can't wait to come back and see the finished product!

I'm not a sewer, but I remember seeing my mother do this when she would sew when I was a child.
