A close up image to show how to whip the thread between two blanket stitches.

Step 5 – Pull the working thread little tightly so that the detached blanket stitches cover the edge of the mirror.
Step 6 – Press the mirror and the pulled thread with your thumb so that the thread doesn't go back to the original position and make a knot by passing the through the first detached blanket stitch made,pull the needle to form a small loop, pass the needle through the loop and pull it tightly.
