Lazy Daisy Stitch
From the back of your fabric pull your needle up at A and form a loop of thread. Holding the loop in place, insert your needle back into the fabric at B, about 1/16" away from A. Bring the needle tip out at C and cross it over trailing thread, keeping thread flat. Gently pull needle and trailing thread until loop lies flat against fabric. Push needle through to back of fabric at D to hold loop in place.
