Another brush you'll find very useful is an Overlock Stitch and here's what it will look like.…Remember you always want to draw your brushes next to a flat to make sure…the scale is correct.…We're going to start with the Line Segment tool just like the…double-needle topstitch.…Click on the page and again, this one is going to be two points with a 0% angle.…Click OK and it's very tiny. And it's over here so let's move it over here.…You want to make sure that the Line Weight is set to 0.25, round Caps,…round Joins, and now let's zoom in a little closer to take a look at what we're doing.…
We're going to duplicate it, copy, paste in front, and move it down with the arrow key.…Now we have to add the little loop so here's how you're going to do it.…You're going to click once with the Pen tool down towards the bottom line segment.…Now notice the little dash line.…That means I'm going to continue what I'm drawing.…If you hold the Shift key, it'll change to an asterisk.…Make sure not to click on the anchor point.…
