This is for my Aunt's first grandbaby. It is also my first attempt at lining a blanket.

The most I have sewn before this lining and the Sophie purse lining was a pair of plain curtains. My sewing machine is EVIL :twisted: and hates me most of the time.

Lovely blanket! Nice fabric lining it too, a lucky baby will receive that!

That's beautiful! I always wondered how lining would work on knitted items because they stretch. How did you sew it on? Is it tacked the middle somehow?

Great job! I have my first baby blanket OTN ... hope mine turns out as nice as yours! I probably won't line mine though. :)

I sewed a hem around the edge, then laid the blanket out flat and pinned the lining in place everywhere. There were so many pins!! I whip stitched the edges down using the back loops of the knitting. There is no tacking down the middle so the lining can move with the knitting without puckering.

Very nice! Looks like you did a good job on the lining; that makes for added warmth, but it certainly could have stood alone.
