Learn To Sew Fabric Lining to your Crochet and Knit Blankets

In this post I you will learn to Sew a fabric lining to  your crochet blankets.    Today I uploaded a video tutorial on my youtube channel that many people have requested.  

This question is often received on my posts and videos.  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 learn to sew a fabric lining to your crochet blankets easily and quickly.  This can also be done with hand sewing.

I recommend blocking your blanket first to get a true size. It 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.

Here is the link for the video.  It explains the whole process.  I hope you enjoy it and that your find it helpful.
