overcast stitching

This is a simple whipstitch that prevents the fabric from raveling while you work. It also prevents catching the embroidery floss on the cut edges of the fabric. Simply cover the fabric edges with overcast stitching or whipstitches. Or, the edges can be secured by acid-free masking tape, binding strips, or machine zigzag stitches.
