Okay okay okay. LAST shark pickture, I promise! One of the reason I use a blanket stitch instead of my sewing machine (though I do use that sometimes too!) is because I love being able to sit and talk with my family while I'm working on them. I can listen to their sweet little voices telling me all about their days or whatever weird song they're making up. Plus, blanket stitching just looks cute, don't you think?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Break the rules with blanket stitch and mix up your stitch lengths! Here's how we use this versatile stitch to give projects an unmistakable handmade finish
Still one of my all time favorites!

Detail of appliqué designs by my great great Aunt, Kathleen Murray ( who was the wife of the English potter #williamstaitemurray
) and my Mum Heather Valentine. Simple stitches such as blanket stitch cross stitch and chain stitch are used to create the designs and I’ve used many of these stitches as inspiration in my current work. The first piece is from the 1920s and the second was made in about 1987.

New dark grey wool Skjoldehamn hood. This one has blanketstitched edges.
Finished for the baby shower!!! :D
Soooooo ^^;;..... I was scrambling to finish the hoop this morning (it was 4am.... ^^;;) I ended up changing the design to compensate for my lack of time xp
Previously, the flowers had stems xp
Design UpDate: Got rid of the greenery, and I added the cloud and sun outlines on top of the words :D
I actually really love the simplicity of the cloud and sun outlines. If I had to replan this, I'd keep the words and cloud/sun outlines, and then pick flowers that would cluster under the words and look fuller :)

I stitched together some spooky guys for a halloween bunting! Thoughts?
I made a simple plaid poncho today! I’ve had this fabric since last year and just couldn’t settle on a project. I decided on a poncho, because I could keep the whole cut of fabric in tact, with one minor cut, and keep the factory sealed edges. It’s already wrinkled because I was snuggled up on the couch with it. 😂 So I would say it’s a big success! I also got to use some machine features I hadn’t used before; the blanket stitch (think that’s the correct name) and I used my button hole foot! I used the multipurpose tool that comes with my machine to attach the massive button too. I had no idea that the multipurpose tool did so much! Ruby and I are getting along just great! #sewsewsew #sewist #husqvarnaviking #rubyroyale #mannequin #buttonhole #blanketstitch #poncho #coldweatherstyle #itspracticallyablanket
Finished my bee throw blanket earlier this week and it is so cozy! Anti pill fleece on one side and sherpa fleece on the other.
Pinned and stitched the two pieces together with my sewing machine then used coordinating yarn to do a blanket stitch edging. This let me use the machine stitches to keep everything even.
