An easy Step to step guide on how to blanket stitch

:) It may look long but i'm just being thorough :)



You Will Need

Project Cost
Almost Nothing

  1. Step 1 1

    You will need...
    1 Needle
    Some material
    A smile on your face :)
    (this coulld probably be done without the smile, but lets be optimistic)

  2. Step 2 2

    Cut yourself some thread, thread your needle and tie a little knot at one end of the thread

  3. Step 3 3

    sew through one side of the fabric..

    <-- like that

  4. Step 4 4

    Do that again

  5. Step 5 5

    Now, before you pull tight, pull the needle through the loop.
    you might want to look at the picture cos this is quite hard to explain

  6. Step 6 6

    Pull tight. The first one always looks a bit odd, but the rest will be ok i promise

  7. Step 7 7

    Sew through the fabric again

  8. Step 8 8

    now pull the needle through the loop again

  9. Step 9 9

    Pull tight

  10. Step 10 10

    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
