With my new Della Fleece out there are questions on what to do with the fleece. You can put it on backs of quilts for a soft finish.....I personally love to just HEM IT!!! For Christmas this year I made a ton of blankets for family.....I thought that I would pass on the EASY technique or hemming your fleece.
First find some of your favorite fleece at your Local Quilt Shop.....determine the finished size of a blanket and then add 2" to each measurement. For example you want a finished size of 60" x 72" cut the fleece 62" x 74".
Sit down at your machine with a new needle and matching thread. Fold the edge of the fleece 1/2" then 1/2" again and start sewing.
Take your time folding and sewing. When you get to the end sew off the edge, cut your threads, fold the next edge 1/2" and 1/2" again. This will be thick. insert the needle at the edge and slowly stitch through the layers. Continue for all edges and you have a new blanket.......I wrap mine with a funky ribbon for a gift of cozy warmth.
I grabbed the camera today and got a couple of shots of the kids with their blankets.....
Have some fun with the fleece and a quick and easy gift.....
