Stitch of the Week: Blanket Stitch-a Roundup of the Best Tutorials

There are so many helpful and awesome embroidery tutorials out there! SOOO many! I have debated whether or not to add my own, but I am not sure I need to. I thought maybe instead I would round up the most helpful tutorials that are already out there, by choosing a new one every other week and then I will provide a project where you can practice it later in the week. What do you think?

Well, I think I am going to jump in and try it, if you hate it let me know 🙂

This week I wanted to use the blanket stitch. I thought this was a really confusing stitch at first, because the first stitch is different than the rest. I always got stuck trying to remember it…but I have come to LOVE it. I love how it looks and I love its versatility. Here are the places to go to find the tutorial to help decomplicate it for you!

I love the internet for all the things you can learn on it. Whether you are a true beginner or a perfectionist, you have to check out weefolkart.com. She has a FANTASTIC tutorial including how to get the spacing of a blanket stitch perfectly even every time. It is so great!

You have probably seen this tutorial from holiday-crafts-and-creations.com on Pinterest. It has A LOT of repins because it is REALLY helpful! It answers many frequently asked questions in a very clear and consise way. I love how she uses more than one color of embroidery floss to help show you what is going on.

I know that sometimes I need to feel like I have a friend sitting next to me showing me what to do. That is what it feels like with Maggy’s tutorial from redtedart.com. I LOVE listening to her! Sidenote, check out her site if you have any kids in your life at all! I seriously want to be her kid! She has so many fun tutorials and ideas for kids crafts…

Needlepointers.com is pretty much a slice of craft heaven. They have everything from embroidery to woodworking. They also have a youtube channel with tutorials. She has a video specifically to help those that want to know how to end the blanket stitch. A lot of people leave that out in their tutorial. She makes it looks so easy! She also shows you the different ways to end the stitch for two pieces of fabric, one piece of fabric and when you are not going all the way around the fabric. All in less than 4 minutes! SUPER helpful!

Thanks to these amazing ladies for such great tutorials! Come back Friday and find a fun project tutorial using this stitch!
