- Fleece - I used 2 and a half yards of 60 inch wide fleece. Pick a pattern or color you like. The one pictured is a dinosaur pattern.
- Blanket binding - Pick a color that coordinates with your fleece. I purchased two - 4 yard packages of the binding. Tim picked hunter green
- Thread - Pick a color that either matches your binding (to hide the stitches) or that coordinates with your fleece (if you want to show off the stitches). We went with dark green to "hide" the stitches.
- Scissors - Standard large scissors work best
- Straight Pins - These are also called "Sewing Pins".
- Sewing machine - You could do this by hand but it takes forever and it's just neater with the machine. No special needle needed because we are only sewing through the binding, not directly through the fleece.
3. Lay out the fabric, if it's not already laid out from trimming the edge, and line up the blanket binding with the long edge of the fabric. The binding is folded in half. Open the binding and lay the fabric along one half, as shown.
4. Fold the binding over the other side of the fabric so that the fabric is between the two halves of the binding. Pin it in place. Continue down the entire length of the fabric, pinning it at every few inches. When you get to the end of the fabric, trim the binding (you will have left over binding, set it aside.)
