    • Pull the thread through the eye of the needle.

    • A good rule of thumb on how much thread to use is twice the size of the hole plus five inches for good measure.

    • Pull the needle from under the fabric through the top of the hole.

    • Be sure that the stitch is not too close to the edge of the hole or else your stitch will come undone.

    • Also be sure that your stitch is not far away. This will make the mend more obvious.

    • Massage the knot so that it becomes uniform with the fabric.

    • Although fleece is thick, this will help the stitch blend in a little more.

Abschluss

After following these instructions, your blanket should be just as functional as when you first got it. The mend is not too noticeable with especially thicker blankets, but may be noticeable in your project. With time and practice, this process can be done quickly and efficiently. If you need to undo the stitching for whatever reason, use the fabric scissors to cut the knot and gently pull the stitching in reverse order.
