I just LOVE embroidering with blanket stitches. Since several of my e-patterns require blanket stitching I thought I'd create a blanket stitch illustration and add it to my group of free Linda's How-Do-I Series? of e-books. Enjoy.
Basic Blanket Stitch
Step 1) Starting at Point A bring your needle up from the WS (Wrong Side) of the fabric along the edge at Point A.
Step 2) Insert the needle in at Point B on the RS (Right Side) of the fabric and cross over your thread.
Step 3) Pull the thread to tighten along the edge.
Step 4) Pull to tighten along the edge at Point B and reinsert your needle in at Point C on the RS (Right Side) of your fabric and cross over your thread along the edge. Pull to tighten along the edge and reinsert your needle at Point D on the RS (Right Side) of the fabric. Continue in this manner until your edge has been covered with your blanket stitches.
