Sewing Hood in Hand

Today I finished the hood. I had to sew the face edge in hand, cause I don't want the machine stitches to be visible. I use a stitch that could be called backstitch but when I showed it to several people who know the backstitch, they had a little problem with it.
Just pull the needle up on one (black) side, push the other fibre along the black one and stitch the needle exactly on the same level - forwards.

Then continue on the same level where you pulled the needle out and stitch a bit back through the black. To make it more comfortable pinned the seams.
And this is how it finished. I wanted to decorate the edges but after ironing I found out that it wasn't necessary. I hope he'll like it :-) I'm afraid it's not the right shape and it won't look nice so I decided to buy him a book for this case ;-)
