The padded blanket stitch (or padded buttonhole stitch) is a composite stitch made up of a series of randomly placed filling stitches, which are then covered with either buttonhole stitches or blanket stitches. If the buttonhole stitches are placed close together this may be called a padded buttonhole stitch. If they are widely spaced then it may be known as a padded blanket stitch.

The padded blanket stitch is associated with free-style embroidery
