Chain stitch is exactly what it sounds like, a stitch that looks like a chain, with many “links” of thread all put together. This is a line stitch, one that is usually used to create an interesting looking outline or lettering. Chain stitch can also be used in close-together rows, creating a filled-in appearance.
Seed stitch is composed of many small straight stitches grouped together. Generally, these stitches should be placed at different angles from one another and end up looking like scattered grains of rice. Seed stitches can be added to an area of a design until the fabric is filled with thread.
