Craft Warehouse stores have this beautifully soft fleece that sews up into an easy baby gift. We have packaged a variety of fleece and blanket bindings into great kits for you!
The binding is packaged folded in half, ready for you to insert the fleece. I found I got the best results opening the binding up and using a zig zag stitch, sewing it on. This way I could see the fleece edge lining up with the fold of the binding. Then I folded it over and stitched the other edge down. The down side of doing it this way is that you see 2 rows of stitching on one side of the blanket. I didn’t find that a deterrent.
Check out the photos below for some tips on sewing the binding.
If you don’t want to deal with mitered corners, use the application shown in the photo below. You sew each side on individually. Sew binding on the top edge, then the bottom edge, then each side. Be sure to fold the ends on the side pieces under before sewing for a nice edge when you use this method.
