This easy crochet edging pattern is a super quick way to add a personal and handmade touch to any piece of fleece or fabric … perfect for a last minute gift or for making items and loveys to donate! If the fabric already has a blanket stitch around it, just work into the tops of the stitches. If there is no stitching around it, no worries at all … check out my post here on how to prep your fabric to crochet a border.
