Blanket Stitch

From the stitching name, one can easily guess the uses of the stitches we are discussing now. The blanket stitch is mainly used for sewing the borderline of the blanket. Besides using as a borderline, it can be used for sewing simple designs and heavy designs either by simple lines or by filling the designs for furnishing the designs. The blanket stitch is used to finish the edges of blankets, tablecloths, mantel valances, and other items, as well as any other kind of fabric, including clothing.

 Process of Blanket Stitch

  • Ø  Bring out the needle from the starting point through the base cloth.
  • Ø  Insert the needle at some distance and pull the thread below by keeping the thread loosely forming a loop.
  • Ø  Bring up the needle at a short distance between the two points formed before.
