    21 microwave bowls? Are you serious?!!

    I have some fleece blankets my friend embroidered for my dogs. She used a blanket stitch from her machine around the edge on one set and serged the other. They have held up really well.

    I have used ordinary acrylic yarn. I did one for DIL with cotton yarn, I was concerned it might shrink but it has held up well.

    If you crochet around the outside what kind of yarn do you use? I'm a beginner in crocheting.

    Thanks

    I think fleece is so warm, you might want to have only single thickness. On the blanket I made for DH, I folded over the edge a good 1/2" or so & used one of the stitches on my machine to thoroughly secure the edges. Fleece doesn't fray.

    I've done MANY fleece blankets this way.

    Re: Fleece blanket

    good suggestions here, I would lean toward the crocheted edging myself. Somewhere I saw a technique that gave you a braided edge rather than tie. Might hold up better than ties for a child.

    Look for "braided edge" fleece blanket on youtube. Several videos pop up, maybe one can help

    I have done this too then added a very large meander over the top just to keep them flush together.

    How about a nice satin blanket binding.

    Re: Fleece blanket

    If you crochet.. there is a method you can find on YouTube
    I've made several and it goes quickly!
    There is a rotary blade that will make the perforations for you, but i've used a fine hole punch upon occasion..

    Re: Fleece blanket

    The fleece blankets I have made were one layer only. I have done sort of a blanket stitch by hand with embroidery floss or finished with a serger.

    Fleece blanket

    My brother has asked that I make a fleece blanket for his 2yro GD. I'm trying to decide the best way to finish the edges. I would like to bind the 2 pieces together. Want to keep the fringe out of the crib workings. Has anybody done this? What method did you use? Kathy
