Blanket Stitch - Starting Off
For the blanket stitch around appliqué I always use four strands of stranded embroidery cotton. It has to be an even number of strands because I start it off with a loop. Leave the loop showing at the the top of the stitch on the right side and pass the needle through the loop to make the first stitch.
The fun starts when you need to start a new thread.
