Left-handed Slipstitch | VideoLearn to sew this versatile stitch with your left hand.
Most sewing instructions are written for right-handed stitchers. Lefties may find it confusing to reverse those instructions so they work for left-handed stitching. If you’ve struggled to visualize how to sew with your left hand, you’ll find help here. Watch to learn a lefty version of the slipstitch.
The slipstitch anchors one fabric layer to another with barely visible stitches. Use it for hemming, appliqué, attaching patch pockets, and more.

Hooray! This is the first time someone has thought to make a left-handed version of sewing instructions. Having to mentally reverse everything so I can do it left handed gets pretty tiring. I look forward to more left-handed features.
Thank you! I have to mentally prepare and practice basic stitches too -reversing everything is challenging. Sometimes I think I’ve made up new stitches but as long as they are invisible and pretty and secure, it works. I’m going to go practice right now! I love the look of handstitches and the process!
