How To Sew The Blanket Stitch

"Make pretty edging on your sewn projects with the blanket stitch Video and photo tutorials show how to sew for this useful hand embroidery stitch on a straight line or around a circle, as well as how to change thread. One important thing to remember is that blanket stitch is worked from left to right, unlike most other hand stitches. As you pull your thread through the fabric, you also must remember to block a little loop with your finger so that you can pass the needle through it. This catches the thread and is what makes it possible to create the cool effect of the thread running along the fabric edge. "
