Ah, the brick stitch is one of my favorites. I think it’s the coolest stitch, you can easily hide your mistakes and there are so many different things you can do with it.
I’ve pretty much used this stitch for making cool shirts on embroideries. First I used it to make the coat of a wild thing
and then I used it again for my little gnome dude
which found himself finally planted onto the outside of a bag!
So here’s how to do it!
Then, I like to use a different color, but you could totally keep using the same color. Do the same thing, a short and then long backstitch but this time you are going to bring them up to meet the bottom of the last row you just finished. Basically you are just filling in the holes.
