How To Do A Beaded Blanket Stitch...

First, let's review the Basic Blanket Stitch...



              Blanket Stitch

*  Bring the threaded needle up through the bottom at 'A'.

*  Take needle to the back at 'B' - going through fabric and back up at 'C' - a short distance from 'A'.  Make sure the thread is under the needle when you emerge at 'C'. 








Regular Blanket Stitch

For regular Blanket Stitch - Thread needle with one 3 strand section of floss and knot one end.  Blanket stitch around edge of wool.  Pull snugly with each stitch,
but not so snugly that it distorts the fabric.




Beaded Blanket Stitch

For Beaded Blanket Stitch - When you complete one regular Blanket Stitch - string one glass bead onto needle, before moving to the next Blanket Stitch.

I like to use Czech Glass Beads, size 6/0, however any size bead would look beautiful.  Always use glass beads as plastic beads could melt when your
project is pressed with an iron.

This is a simple way to add a beautiful finish to your projects !
