Sewing a hidden stitch is simple and doesn’t require special skills

But to make a beautiful and really hidden stitch you should follow these steps.

Pull out the needle from inside of the item so that the knot is hidden in the fold.

 Run the needle through the fold so that the working thread comes out exactly from the fold of the fabric.

Move to the opposite side of the opening and insert the needle close to the starting point, grab 2-6 mm (1/16 - 1/4 in)  of fabric with the needle connecting the two parts

Make sure the needle is going directly into the fold.

Move to the opposite side again and grab 2-6 mm (1/16 - ¼ in)  of fabric.

Pull the thread until the stitch is hidden in the crease between the fabric folds.

Continue until you come to the end of the opening, pulling the thread every couple of stitches

Don’t tighten the thread!

As you can see even if I used a white thread for a green pillow the stitch I made is completely invisible and the white thread disappears inside the fabric folds

Completely Invisible!
