How to Do Blanket Stitch

By:

The Blanket Stitch always gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling. It tucks in around a fabric edge holding it safe and neatly outlining the shape. But it can also act as a decorative stitch across the surface of fabric creating rows of UUUU or MMMM depending upon orientation.  Tutorial from C&T Publishing.

Blanket Stitch Diagram 1

Here’s how I make my Blanket Stitches: With the thread on top at A, place the tip of the needle about 1/4″ up and to the right of point A. Insert the needle at B and exit at C, about 1/4″ to the right of A. Trap the thread coming out of A under the needle tip and draw the needle and thread slowly through the fabric.

Point C is now Point A. Repeat the directions aboveforming a row or following the edge of a shape. Different effects are achieved by varying the spacing between points A and C or the length of the B/C stitch. Here’s an example of the Blanket Stitch as an outtie rather than an innie. UUUUMMMMUUUUMMM Enjoy!

Hi! Wanted you to know I posted a link to this tutorial today on my blog. Nancy Ward PaperFriendly http://www,nancywardcrafts.com

Have done this stitch and enjoy the nostalgic look it gives. Look forward to using the other effects of this stitch. I made some christmas ornaments out of felt for my two grand daughters last year. Maybe a new tradition in the making...Thanks,Lisa

FINALLY! A simple how-to pattern with pictures including the placement of fingers in relation to the needle. I'm going to print this and keep it with my patterns for shirtsjackets etc that call for a blanket stitch embroidery. Thank you Laura.
