On the Edge...

Blanket Stitch / Buttonhole Stitch.  Are they the same thing?  Find out over at Cutting Corners today!

My cute friend Frannie gave me an old Necci booklet called "Modern Home Sewing" published in 1952 which I've used as a resource (and an occasional giggle) to prepare this year's series of vintage stitchery and sewing tutorials at Riley Blake Designs' blog. 

I also had a look at my Mother's little Coats & Clark's "100 Embroidery Stitches" booklet.  That one is from 1964. They're little treasures!  And don't you love it when everything old is new again?  I do.  I love it. Check out today's tutorial HERE.

  1. This was really interesting. I had no idea that the two sittches were a bit different. I've always just used the blanket stitch even when I did a bit of a repair job on a buttonhole. I love knowing these things; one never can be sure when the perfect situation will come up. Thanks, Deonn.

    1. I just googled One Hundred Embroidery Stitches Coats Clark and came up with many links to used booklets just like this one.
