Sewing Tip: MAKING EVEN BLANKET STITCHES

 1.  With a marker, turn your thumb into a ruler.

2.  Make marks ¼” or ⅜” apart.

3.  Hold your thumb at the same level to get even stitches every time.

4.  Stitch up through the top loop front to back to get a straight line across the top.

I had a friend who tattooed a ruler on her finger. The marker is cheaper and less painful.
