Anybody know anything on blanket stitching for sewing?
I'm a beginner in sewing, and I'm taking an apparel construction class at school. I'm making a stuffed animal pillow, and I have to use felt. I have to do blanket machine stitching, but I'm not sure what thread and needles I'm supposed to use. I bought all purpose thread, and I have universal needles. Can I use those for my project?
