This is super easy and not scary at all. Start by bringing your needle up about 1/4″ below the edge of the fabric piece, or the piece you are sewing on.
In this case, the brown felt.
Sew a little stitch about 1/4″ from the left of this one, putting the needle 1/4″ below the edge of the felt and bringing it out just above the felt. Make sure the needle passes over the loop of thread.
Repeat this last step again to start forming the blanket stitch.
Sew all the way around the piece until you come back to the beginning. For the last stitch, loop it through the first stitch to make the thread lay flat.
