Sewing with blanket stitch

Blanket stitch sewing video tutorial

The blanket stitch, also called buttonhole stitch, began as a way to finish the edges of blankets and other things like tea towels and pillowcases.

There are many ways to use this stitch as a decorative stitch – from flowers and leaves to filling and outlining.

The modern usage of the Blanket stitch:

  • to finish an edge,
  • to attach an appliqué,
  • as a decorative stitch for outlining,
