Pin the fabric right sides together, surge or zigzag around the perimeter, pulling out the pins as you go and leaving a small opening. Pull the fabric inside out through opening.
The next blankets I made in a hurry I was invited to a baby shower for a friend having twins, and didn't want to spend the time and money buying the minky so I ran to Ross to pick up some inexpensive baby blankets $4.99--which is a steal for minky and the blanket binding. Her nursery colors are blue and green. I found two matching bright blue blankets, ran to hobby lobby next to pick up some green fabric and thread and went to work.
First I unpicked the blanket binding from the Ross blanket.
Next I cut my fabric to the same size as the minky blanket and pinned them to gether this time wrondg sides together, because the binding covers the raw edges. Here you can stitch or surge the fabric and blanket together for a stronger hold.
Next wrap the binding back around the blanket as before and pinning in place on one side.
Next flip the blanket over and pin again. The goal is to make sure that the binding does not move and is fitted evenly to both sides.
Next topstitch carefully along the same lines as the binding was sewn on before. I ending up using blue thread and not the green pictured, I am not the best at sewing straight and my lines did not show up as much using the matching thread.
Then I folded the blanket and put it back on its original hanger, and it is now gorgeous and one of a kind, well in this case, two of a kind.
