Sewing Satin Trim on Blankets

Is there a no fail way to sew satin trim on blankets? Mine always gets bunched up or even completely missed by my sewing machine when I am trying to sew it on with just one side visible to the eye.

I would recommend sewing just one side of the satin trim with your machine and the other by hand:

  1. Press one side of satin trim up 1/2 inch.
  2. With right sides together, match raw edge of unpressed satin trim to raw edge of blanket. Stitch 1/2 inch; from raw edge. Press seam toward the blanket.

  3. Fold satin trim over so that the pressed edge covers your seam allowance. You can pin and press the trim so that the folded edge just barely covers the seam stitching.

  4. You will now sew the folded edge to the blanket by hand. Do this by drawing up one stitch on your needle, sliding the needle through the folded edge of the satin (3-5 stitch lengths) and then bring the need out of the edge of the satin. Repeat around the blanket.

Hopefully that makes sense. Good luck. (10/08/2008)

I am a big believer in using glue sticks for just such an application as yours. Use the kind that wash out. It's glue basting and you can get the satin trim to stay just where you want it so you can sew it on. Just let it dry completely before you sew or you can really gum up your needle.
