For those who want to learn how to learn how to sew but don't know where to begin.

This is by no means meant to cover everything there is about sewing or is it meant to answer all your questions. The best place to learn is on the internet. It has so many free resources as well as locations for you to buy patterns, tutorials, etc. Some artists even offer master classes to teach you specific things and to learn their tricks of the trade. I personally have learned all I know from the internet and purchasing patterns and books.

Hope this helps you with your sewing endeavors.

To be honest, I think think it would be clearer with multiple photos per stitch. ;)

The number are supposed to remove the need for multiple photos, but is just meant as a stepping stone resource. There are many other resources online, youtube, and via books. Actually doing also helps figure out what is and is not clear too. 

I've never heard the need for more photos in all the 7.5k+ views so I just don't know what more can be learned from additional photos and at what times you would take those photos. For certain things (such as knitting), I do prefer video. Each person learns differently, so I would definitely recommend youtube. There's just so much information available onlne

So with the back stitch, after the third stitch, you go back throughhole number one?

Yes, you go up from the back and are basically stitching your way backwards

I already knew the info given here, but I thought you explained really well, it was easy to follow from a beginner's point of view without too much waffle. I'd really love it if you did more advanced tutorials based on sewing because I'm sure I'd learn a lot from you :)

Thank you for your kind words. I offer both online and real life workshops on my more advanced techniques such as needle felting and needle sculpting. These are full 11 hour classes though that work through the bear or bear friend from start to finish. Most of my patterns and instructions are available for sale on dA. There are also many resources available both online and books on more advanced techniques, but as for now, I don't have an intention on doing more tutorials. I learned most of what I know through trial and error

This explains so much! Now I understand why you use the backstitch and not running stitch to re-enforce XD I was wondering when I did my first doll what the difference was. Thank you for the tutorial!
