Sewing Tips
Ladder Stitch
Knot the thread and conceal the knot inside one end of the opening. Bring the needle out just above the end of the opening, about 1/4" from the raw edge. 

*Insert the needle into the other side of the opening directly opposite where you brought it out. Take a small stitch under the fabric, then bring the needle out on the same side. 

Repeat from * until you’ve stitched the entire opening, then pull the thread taut to close the gap. Fasten off and trim thread.
