|Pillowcase, summer blankie, and Hootie Hexagon play book - the Hooray! Collection|
The little blankie began as a cheesecloth dishtowel that measured 30" x 40". It was really, really crooked and I squared it up. I cut three strips 3" x wof of the black owl fabric, sewed into a long row attached it like binding on a quilt. ONLY, I never sew from the front to the back. I sew from the back to the front and because the strips are wide, it makes it look like there is a border, but it's just wide binding. I stitched it down with a serpentine stitch in lime green, from the front. Easy, quick, colorful.
