The second step is to pin your blanket together. With the fabric right sides together (the printed side) and the Rick Rack in between pin together all three layers.
For the corners I pin with the rick rack going all the way beyond the end of the fabric and pin two sides of the rick rack together. Once this is sewn we will trim our corners.
Once your blanket is pinned it is time to sew. I use my presser foot as a guide for what seam line to use. I believe it is 1/4'' or so. Make sure you leave about a 4-6'' opening so that you can turn your blanket right side out.
Once you finish sewing turn your blanket right side out and press. Make sure you turn your opening in when you press so that it will be easier to sew close.
Once you have pressed the blanket really well the next step is to top stitch the blanket. The sewing machine that I now have has several decorative stitches to choose from. For years before I had this machine I used a zig zag stitch to top stitch my blankets. This actually is a cute idea. If you do not want to use the zig zag you can simply do a regular straight stitch as close to the edge as you get all the way around the blanket. Whatever stitch you use make sure to catch your opening so it closes nicely.
And there you have it...an awesome Ricky blanket to give your baby or a friend's! If you wait until the material is on sale you can buy all of your fabric and rick rack for less than $10. If you happen to make one be sure to send me a picture so I can post it for others to see. This blanket is for personal use only...not sell :) Please let me know if something was not clear and I will try to answer your questions as best I can!
