chain stitching
I have to do some chain stitching on a purse I made for my sister (for those of you who kinda know what I'm talking about, my sister said the purse is just fine) How do you do it? I did one little circle and it looks like $@*! Can someone help me?

So do I do a chain stitch and then stitch it on the purse I'm making? I don't know how to embroider. Is there a term in embroidery called a chain stitch too? Here's the link, if you can figure it out that would be great! I'm confused!

Thanks, I didn't mean to panic. I thought she'd linked the pattern in her first post and my head exploded.

LOL- as soon as I saw your post I realized what she meant the first time!!!

Sorry HygeineMAmma!!! didn't mean to confuse you more!! I had thought you meant a crochet edging or handle or something.
