Video Tutorial: Embroidery Blanket Stitch
Pull the yarn through to the top of your fabric. Hold on to the yarn with your left hand.Insert the needle to the right 1/4" to 1/2" over(horizontal) from the previous vertical line and 1/2" to 3/4" down(vertical) from the edge. Make sure the needle goes over the top of the yarn you are holding with your left hand.Pull the yarn through. You will have sort of a horseshoe shape or upside down U shape.Keep repeating steps 1-3 for each stitch.It is not as difficult as you may think. All you need to do is hand sew a blanket stitch around your cloth piece. You will have thread loops at the edge of your cloth, that you will use to attach your crochet. The video tutorial shows how to make the blanket stitch. It is done the same way on cloth. You will be using a smaller thread and needle but the process is the same. I am planning a future tutorial on adding an actual edging to cloth.
