Learn To Sew Fabric Lining to your Crochet and Knit Blankets
In this post I will share how to Sew a fabric lining to your crochet and knit items. Today I uploaded a video tutorial on my youtube channel that many people have requested. I have gotten this question so many times. How do you sew a lining to a crochet or knitted blanket without ruining it? Well, in today’s video I show you how I do it.
There is no need to be afraid of your sewing machine. Using a few little tricks you can sew a fabric lining to your work easily and quickly. I recommend blocking your blanket first to get a true size. This is important since you will need to know what size to cut your fabric lining. In the video I demonstrated on a 12 inch granny square (for filming purposes). The concept is the same with all sizes.
First you will need to work at least 2 rows of single crochet all the way around your piece. (for knitted pieces I work 2 knitted stitched on each edge, right and left of each row. I also work the first two rows and last two row in the knitted stitch. This gives me a new edge to sew). There are several ways you can sew a lining to crochet and knit blankets. I demonstrate how to do this using a sewing machine. However, it is still possible to do the same thing by sewing the lining on by hand. Not having a sewing machine doesn’t mean you can’t sew linings to your projects. You can also use this same technique to sew linings to bags or other items.
