Guest Post- Sewing basics for starters

Hello Lovely Craftionary readers!! 

I am so thrilled to be blog swapping here with the lovely Hani today!
I’m Kassi from Truly Lovely! Truly Lovely with the Laney Sisters, if you really want the whole thing… 🙂 Truly Lovely is a blog hosted by myself and my sister Kayli on all things that we find to be Truly Lovely!!
Today I would like to share a super easy fleece blanket tutorial with you!! 

Photobucket

The materials needed are:
  • 2 yards of fleece fabric
  • 1 package of coordinating satin blanket binding
  • Coordinating yarn and thread pins
  • Yarn Needle and scissors
  • Sewing machine
Photobucket

In this case I went with zebra fabric and all red coordinating materials.
First trim your fleece fabric of any uneven edges or those funky white labeled edges. You know what I’m talking about 🙂

Then, using the Yarn Needle, stitch your thread down the two length sides of your fabric like so. I spaced each stitch about a half an inch apart. Next you’ll pin and trim your satin binding to the two width sides (the two shorter sides). The binding will have a fold down the middle, simply line that fold up with the edge of your fabric, making sure it’s centered so there’s an even amount of binding on both sides. 


Fold over the edges of the binding to make your four corners and pin those as well. You can either trim or fold the extra binding inside to make your corner.

Once you have the binding pinned onto both sides, get out the sewing machine. I used red thread to match the binding. If you sew really well, you can use a varying color of thread for added pop! I don’t so much, so matching thread hides my inexperienced sewing skills. 🙂 (I’m a little addicted to zebra print. can you tell?)

Simply sew the binding to the fleece pulling pins as you go. And TaDA! They make great baby gifts, or gifts for friends or family! 🙂
