Working from left to right, bring the needle up at 1 and insert at 2, leaving the thread loose. Bring the needle back up at 3, keeping the needle above the thread and pulling the needle toward you gently to tighten the thread so that it is flush with the fabric. Tack the thread down by inserting the needle at 4. Repeat for the desired number of stitches.
