I have been working on this blanket for two weeks. This was the project I started when I dropped the needle screw into my serger. I just cannot get my regular blanket stitch to work on this blanket. I have finally come to the conclusion that it just does not like this material. This was different from what I usually purchase. I always try and buy the Blizzard fleece, it is my favorite. I had to decide to finish it in another way.
The material was very busy, so I added in a solid piece of fleece with my youngest grandson's name embroidered on it so it would show up. I had first embroidered right onto the blanket and the letters just got lost in the print. Sooo, then I embroidered it on the black fleece and sewed it on the blanket over top of the other embroidery. Then I cut that section out of the back after I was finished. Remember I sew two layers of fleece together for my blankets. This way I had no added bulk. To finish the hem, I sewed it around the edge about 1 inch in from the edge with a "Briar" stitch on the Janome machine. I like the way it turned out. It looks like a feather stitch and I took a picture for you to see. What do you think? I am just glad it is finished.
