Best answer: How do you make satin stitch better?

Why is my satin stitch loose?

Use the correct fabric.

If the weave in the fabric is too loose there will not be enough placement for the needle and your satin stitches wont be able to slot in nicely next to each other. Use either a high count (200 count) cotton muslin /batiste or a min of 1400 HC linen.
