blanket stitch video tutorial – embroidery stitches

Blanket stitches are a great tool for multiple purposes. You can make it very dense by setting each stitch very close to another or more loosely to create an open blanket stitch. It doesn’t eat up a ton of thread on the backside and therefore is very economic in comparison to other filling stitches. In sewing, the blanket stitch is used to clean up the edges or hems (e.g. for blankets 😉 ) and for appliqué. In this video tutorial, you’ll learn how to make the blanket stitch easily.

This tutorial is part of the new lexicon of embroidery stitches.
