- [Instructor] Alright, now it's time…to add some stitches to this t-shirt.…And stitches are pretty easy…because we set up stitches graphic style.…So let's zoom in to the hem of the t-shirt first…and add the stitches there.…We're going to start with the white arrow…and we're going to copy the hemline of the shirt.…So, we'll just grab that, copy, command C.…And this time, instead of pasting in back,…we're going to past in front.…And that is command F or control F for front.…
So command F, paste in front.…And now with the arrow keys on your keyboard,…you're going to nudge this up two or three clicks…to where you want the hem to sit.…And then click on the stitches graphic style.…And we've got stitching on our hem.…For the sleeve, we're going to do it a little differently.…Since it's on an angle…and if we nudge things, it sort of moves oddly.…I'm just going to grab the pen tool…and go ahead and draw a path where I want my stitches to be.…And because I'd already clicked on stitches,…it's giving me stitches,…but we'll just click again…
