The Real Blanket Stitch Found & French Press Info

This is what the correct stitching looks like!!!!!

If you want to know about sewing with the blanket stitch, my sister found this tutorial from futuregirl http://www.futuregirl.com/craft_blog/2007/09/tutorial-hand-sew-felt.aspx


It is so well written & even has pictures to show the process!!!!

Freebird asks about my last post. I hope this clears up my mud! If not let me know!!!
A cozy is a "sweater" to wrap around my press to keep my coffee warm for a longer time.

This is a French Press Coffee Maker. I believe this one is made by Clover. (I got the pick off the web)




And here is a pretty good article on how to use one. I learned that if I stir the grounds & water, using a chopstick (I'll use my plastic ones) so I don't break the glass pot, it enhances the coffee taste even more! This one has pictures too!! http://coffeegeek.com/guides/presspot
So now on to better stitching & brewing for us all!!!

Oh, I've got it now. Thanks for answering. I had heard of and used tea cozies (before the microwave came out) but never heard of these or even that coffee maker.

your cozy looks like a bracelet at first glance. i like it for either purpose. i also think your guerilla journals are wonderful. they are so free.
