Adding a Missing Garter Stitch Ridge into a Finished Project // Technique Tuesday

This video demonstrates how to fix a mistake in a garter stitch border discovered after the project is off the needles. The embroidery technique used is not duplicate stitch (it's backstitch) but it functions in much the same way in order to correct mistakes in the fabric.
