Machine Blanket Stitch

18 06 2009

We gave Nolan a Kodak Zi6 for graduation.  It is a very compact video camera.  I’ve been eying it and finally snagged it today to try to do a video showing how to machine blanket stitch raw edge applique.  It is a really cool little camera, but I’m struggling with getting the focus exactly right looking at the presser foot of a sewing machine.  I can zoom in regular mode and it isn’t perfectly focused and the micro focus wants to be closer than I can set the camera and still sew.  I need to play more, but for now here is a 5 minute video on stitching machine blanket stitch around applique pieces.

Wow – thanks for doing that – I completely forgot I had a mirror image on my machine! I love doing the blanket stitch by machine. I can’t believe you were able to do that, so close-up. That was great!
