how to close a seam with a ladder stitch

as a newbie sewer i am always on the lookout for new ways to hide my stitches when closing up a softie or a pillowcase. i am a visual learner so sometimes books just don't cut it for me. i spotted this video on closing a seam with a ladder stitch on craft today. what a great way to hide those little stitches you just don't want seen. i wish i had seen this clip a few months ago! it sure would have saved me a lot of work when trying to seam up a few projects my poor chubby fingers bled over.

what's your favorite way to close a seam?
