This is my latest crochet project for my granddaughter, Lillian. I started with a super soft piece of pink fabric and edged it with seam binding (Grandma Gail gets all the credit for that step). I tried adding the blanket stitch directly to the fabric, but it was just too fuzzy for consistent stitches. Next, I added a blanket stitch all the way around and then started the crochet border. I found the border in the book, The Finer Edge, by Kristin Omdahl.
