well I made another one for my sis-n-law who is due July, I had such a hard time on this second one, the first one I made was a breeze, this one was impossible, I could not get the binding to stay even, I pinned the crap out of it and everytime as I sewed it just bunched up and got all wonky, I ripped it all out the first time and tried again pinning more and the same thing happended, so I got frustrated and just sewed it anyway, Im so disapointed in it, but it looks okay in the picture, just a little embarassed to gift it, but I tried mulitple times to fix it, it just wasnt working, weird!?! Huh

The lighter print is pink and white stripe


Shiny and Cool!

what do you do with the end of the binding when you get almost finished? i tried to fold it under for a nice, finished look, and it didn't work at all...should i maybe try to line it up so it ends inside one of the corner folds? that sounds rather difficult...

Thank you so much for posting this.  I made one last year before my son was born.  He likes it a lot, but I think I like it best.  My binding is kid of messy, but I was just learning how to use my sewing machine (still don't have the hang of it).

Thanks so much for the mitered corner tutorial. I've been searching for one I could understand and I totally understood this one. Now I can finish that baby blanket!
