  • Place the needle in the inner area of the blanket stitch, bringing the point of the needle out at the edge of the fabric.
  • Loop the thread behind the point of the needle.
  • Pull the needle through the fabric allowing the edge thread to loop on the edge of the fabric.
  • Repeat to continue sewing the edge you want covered with a blanket stitch.
  • The depth of the stitch into the fabric and the spacing between stitches are important to provide a uniform blanket stitch.
