A blind stitch embroidery in sewing is a method of joining two pieces of fabric so that the stitch thread is invisible, or nearly invisible. Blind stitching hides stitching under folded edges; therefore, this type of stitch can be used to create a blind hem or to join two folded edges together. Sometimes while joining two pieces of fabric for various kinds of projects, like making a nice skirt. It is desirable that the stitches do not appear above the main fabric.
Blind stitching is useful when joining two folded edges together, as the thread is only visible when the folded material is pulled away. This technique allows the sewer to invisibly attach pockets, facings and trimmings to a garment

The method of Blind stitch is a technical one. so, here you bring you the simplest step by step process to work on the blind stitch-
- To begin with this stitch, it will be better to practice by making two folded edges meeting each other, using two different fabrics. Thread the needle, and make sure to tie the knot on the other side of the thread.
- Now bring out the needle up through the bottom folded edge. Produce a flat horizontal stitch at the edge of the top fold. Put the needle directly up above where the needle with thread came out on the bottom part edge.
- Following the same procedure as done with the upper fold edge horizontal stitch, now take the needle a stitch distance forward and make a horizontal stitch on the edge of the lower fold.
- Follow the same steps to produce a similar kind of stitch alternatively on the upper and lower fold.
It is better not to pull the thread and make it tight as you go along the stitch. Complete the entire part, and at the end pull it all together.
