Sew together the top of the blanket using .25” seams, pressing each seam as needed to the darker fabric.
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.
Sew the two layers together using a straight or decorative stitch across the blanket, removing all of your pins as you go.
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.
Beginning at one corner, sew a decorative stitch all the way around your blanket, tucking in any raw edges.
Iron your blanket and go enjoy the outdoors!
