How to hand sewing to make Kimono


I’m going to talk about hand sewing to make Kimonos this time 🙂

But you might use these skills for other things*


Nami-nui (running stitch)



We are using the thimble type of put it on middle finger.

The left hand just move up and down straightly.

The thumb and index finger follow the needle while push the needle straightly by your middle finger.


We are using that stitch for back and side seam regularly.



Hangaesi-nui(half back stitch)

I like and recommend you that stitch!

The needle go through in to a margin to sew up so you can hide the thread.

We use it for the end of the stitch not to split.

Prick with a needle from left side to right side 2 or 3times.

And then tie down to the thread that you stitched before.
