When not inserting a zipper for a closure, do your stitches look sloppy like this? There is an easy way to sew stitch the closure so you don't see the stitches at all.
Start by double threading your needle and knotting the end.
Make sure your seam edges are pressed with a crisp fold for stitching.
Insert the needle under the fold and come out the top of the fold.
Put the needle in the opposite side and push it about 1/8" and come back out the same fold. Now go in through the opposite fold and push the needle about 1/8" and come out the same fold.
Continue going in and out and back and forth until you reach the end of the opening.
See how nice it looks and how easy too!
When you get to the end, just stitch in the same spot several times with small stitches. Cut thread.
Finished seam has undetectable stitches.
