Well... I finally figured it out.. Figured what out? A blanket stitch!
After seeing Savitri's card I had to learn how to do that. It must've taken me a couple weeks to figure out that I could just look up how to do it on youtube. Youtube is a awesome for learning techniques! I love it!
Here's the video I learned from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJht13Bcw-U
I took me several rewinds before I got it down but after that it was really easy. You just have to make sure to pull the needle through the thread loop and make sure the spacing is even. Not too shabby for my first time huh?
