Blanket stitch filling 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. Now it’s used to finish an edge, attach an appliqué or as a decorative stitch all on its own. There are a lot of ways to use this stitch as a decorative stitch – from flowers and leaves to filling and outlining. The advantage of the blanket stitch is that it gives you an outline on one side which can make the design stand out. You can make this stitch as dense as you want: from net-like big squares up to so dense, that it looks almost like satin stitches.
