Repairing a Baby Blanket?

A worn knitted baby blanket.Hi, this is my baby blanket I've had since I was born (I'm 19 now). I sleep with it every night and it is extremely important to me. I am very scared and crying because it's falling apart and idk how to fix it.

Can I maybe sew felt over all the falling apart patches? Like in that one picture there's felt on the corner which my grandma did when I was very young and the corner ripped. I am pretty sure this is beyond being able to be repaired with knitting so I figured that would be my best choice. I am really really scared because I can't lose this blanket I am so attached to it.

What should I do?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have a sewing machine, use a 'zig zag' stitch to try to pull all the loose ends together and also sew around the entire blanket. You will need to do some hand sewing as well on other areas of it.

I would then place your blanket over quilted fabric, then hand sew/tack it to the fabric to salvage your blanket.

If you know anyone who is a good knitter, they may be able to re-knit the holey areas enough to salvage your blanket. It won't look perfect, but it might be okay. As far as the edge, some satin blanket hem tape in a color to match as good as possible, could be stitched around the perimeter. Good luck.

I think it is very fragile by now. You might want to snip a piece off, finish it around the edges and cherish that.

I would take it to a craft store and match the thread with about the same color and texture as your baby blanket, and with a "big eye" needle hand sew the holes together, and then with fabric glue go over the stitches. I believe this will hold it together.
