A smile on your face :)
(this coulld probably be done without the smile, but lets be optimistic)

Sew through the fabric again
now pull the needle through the loop again
Voila! now the trick to even stitching is to make sure you have even depth and width between your stitches...
I hope this helps anyone looking at how to blanket stitch!! xx
