Any crocheters out there?

So one of my 'mommy resolutions' was to crochet Lily a dress. The dress I had in mind seemed little advanced for my current skill level so I started with some little booties. So these booties are made in two pieces, the sole and the rest, which you are supposed to make separately then connect.

Well, I have made all the pieces but I can NOT for the life of me figure out how to connect them! All the book says is to use a "running" stitch...I tried googling that but nothing!

Does anyone have any ideas???

Running stitch is the most basic stitch and the simplest one. It is also called the quilting stitch. It is used to create wonderful quilt patterns in Indian Kantha embroidery.

To work this stitch one just has to move the needle over and under the fabric at regular spaces along the embroidery line. Neatness comes with the regularity in the stitch size over and beneath the cloth.

I don't know anything about crocheting, but I know we learned a running stitch in my sewing class at BYU. Try looking in a basic sewing book.
I look forward to seeing pictures of your project!

All I have to offer are my scarf-crochetting skills. Sorry!

if you're still having trouble I have limited knowledge on the subject. I made a baby blanket for Andrea and amazingly enough it turned out straight and even.
