Chain stitch can be used not only as an outline / border stitch but also as a beautiful filling stitch. Reverse chain stitch does not look different from the regular chain stitch. Only difference is, it is stitched in the opposite direction. Some people believe that reverse chain stitch is easier to stitch than regular chain stitch.
Bring the thread up
Make a single straight stitch. Go down and come back up like shown below. This distance will determine the size of the chain stitch.
When this step is completed, the stitch will look like this.
Now lace the needle through this stitch to form the chain. While lacing, make sure you are not piercing the fabric or plucking any strands.
Pierce the needle at the same spot this chain started and go down and come back up again.
First chain has been made.
Repeat the same and form the chain by lacing through the first chain.
Second chain is formed now.
