How To Sew A Running Stitch
Start with a threaded needle and fabric you’d like to sew or embellish. Chalk and a straight edge can be helpful.
Optional: use the chalk and straight edge to draw guidelines for stitching.
Move the needle up and down through the fabric in order to achieve a dashed line look. That’s the running stitch.
You can load quite a few stitches onto the needle before you pull the thread through.
Three different stitch patterns, same stitch. Offset, even, random.

To tie it off, wrap the thread around the needle as it comes out the back side, and pull through like tying a knot.
