Step 4: Sew

Sew all the way around, about 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch from the inner edge of the binding, making sure you are sewing both sides of the binding and the fabric in between.
To turn a corner, sew 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch past the next side, make sure the needle is down and all the way through the fabric, raise the presser foot and pivot the fabric around the needle until it is facing in the direction you now want to sew and then continue.
I made mine x-tra cozy by using 2 layers of fleece.

This is a great alternative to those tie edges. Thanks:)
Yeah, the tie edges are great if you don't have a sewing machine, but I think that this way of doing it give a much cleaner finished look.
I have a nephew on the way and I will definitely be doing this! Thank you for the great idea :D
These are great baby gifts! I've made so many!
Great job - I love the edges on it - makes it look really nice!
