This variation of the blanket stitch is useful for creating loops and for adding texture to dimensional embroidery. it is worked from one side to another on a foundation made up of straight stitches. The blanket stitches do not got through the fabric.
1) Bring the thread to the front of the fabric in A. Take the needle to the side at B. Pull the thread through to form a straight stitch.
2) Repeat step 1 to build a double-threaded foundation stitch that will support the weight of the blanket stitches.
3) Bring the needle to the front just under A. Pull the thread.
4) Take the needle from top to bottom behind the foundation stitches. Do not go through the fabric.
5) Position the thread under the tip of the needle and begin pulling the thread through.
6) Continue pulling the thread towards you until the stitch is wrapped snuggly around the foundation stitches.
7) Repeat steps 4-6 until the foundation stitches are completely covered.
8) To secure the final blanket stitch, take the needle to the back of the fabric in B. Pull the thread and secure it at the back of the fabric.
