Today I’m excited to share a blanket stitch tutorial–a video that will (I’m confident) allow you to master this oh so important stitch. I use blanket stitch again and again–and it is the stitch that I have the most questions and concerns about. I hope you find the video tutorial helpful–and keep in mind, my stitching is never perfect–but that’s part of the homemade charm, right? Find the blanket stitch tutorial video below.
I am sharing this video tutorial today because lately I have been working on some REALLY BIG projects, and (clearly) had very few smaller projects to share here. So, in the meantime I thought I should make a few videos that demonstrate some embroidery skills. I only have 3 now: this blanket stitch tutorial as well as 2 other cross stitch videos. I’d love for you to subscribe to my Youtube channel here where I will continue to make and share embroidery tutorials.
And, without further ado, BLANKET STITCH TUTORIAL–Happy stitching!
If anything was unclear after watching the video, please don’t hesitate to ask, either here, on facebook or through email. As I said in the video, the stitch is really easy once you get the hang of it. Blanket stitch is the trickiest with that first stitch. And, as with most types of embroidery, practice makes perfect.
Now that you have mastered the blanket stitch, here are a few fun projects for you complete and blanket stitch to heart’s desire!
31 Jesse Tree Ornament Patterns
Felt Nativity Set Pattern
Felt Owl Coin Purse (with hidden closure)

I also have SEVERAL more felt projects that call for a blanket stitch. Just brows through my project gallery!
thanks for being here and learning to stitch with me. There are so many fun application for the blanket stitch–and I hope after mastering it you have loads of fun dreaming up projects for you kids, home, Christmas tree and more. I can’t help but dream up project after project…
In fact, at the moment I am in the middle of a couple of BIG projects where blanket stitch plays a major role. I can’t wait to share them with you…but before that…I have to get some stitching done!
All the best!
