Step 2:

Once the top is complete, lay it flat and right side up on top of the backing fabric. Smooth out any wrinkles and pin the two pieces together.

Step 3:

Sew the two layers together using a straight or decorative stitch across the blanket, removing all of your pins as you go.

Step 4:

Lay the blanket right-side up and fold over the overlapping backside to create your binding which will be about .5”. Pin as you go.

Step 5:

Beginning at one corner, sew a decorative stitch all the way around your blanket, tucking in any raw edges.

Step 6:

Iron your blanket and go enjoy the outdoors!
