Do a Nun Stitch hem around it and then fringe it when you're done.

Draw a thread to show where you want the edge of the blanket to be.
Work hemstitch all around the blanket.
Draw another thread to mark where the edge of the fringe will be.
Cut along this drawn thread.
Ravel back to the hemstitching.

There are many stitches suitable for restraining a fringe. As long as
the outermost thread is firmly anchored to the fabric, it will do.
Most people prefer a stitch that gathers the threads of the fringe
into little bunches, but if the fabric is very coarse, you may prefer
to work a separate stitch for every thread.

Do not under any circumstances ravel out the fringe first and attempt
to restrain it afterwards.

I use the he stitch method but be sure you do the pulled thread and cut for the fringe edge, that makes for the neatest finish.

Nun stitch - that's the one! Thank you so much. I have now googled it and know how to do it

To the person who posted the message below, I am sorry I haven't said thank you the moment members of this group came back with answers but this is actually the first time I checked whether someone replied. I am not 'using' the group, but asked because I thought I am allowed to. If you are the person who emailed me, sorry, I didn't open the email as I tend not to read emails from people I do not know. Sorry if I offended you

The message which I am replying to, from : 'I notice that these gmail questions never come back to thank anyone
for information, haven't checked the outfit that used to be Sew Girls
and morphed into another mirror group, but likely we are being used
again. '

We had a problem with a group calling themselves Sew Girls, taking all
our posts and putting them up on their site. They were of course
selling ad space and wanted to look really busy for their advertisers.

What distressed me was they never came to the group, we never had any
interaction with the poster who asked the question. One way and
another, I found out who their lawyer was and demanded they never pass
on my posts and to my surprise it worked although they still posted
everyone elses posts. Even ones from Karen that say in the sig line,
not for reposting! It said to me that what they were doing was indeed
marginal

I see Sew Girls have now gone out of business (good) but they probably
just morphed and every so often posts appear, some of us answer, and
that's it we never hear - as with you - that it helped solve the
problem etc.

When I could no longer find Sew Girls I emailed you to see if you were
a 'real' address and if so -which board. However it now becomes
clear, you really did find our group - so sorry about that - the
diatribe, not that you found us~ and welcome !

Thanks Sheena! And I am happy I found the group as I now know what I wanted to know and can finish off the baby blanket the moment I finished the embroidery. I belong to a few other groups, but mostly to do with my job, this is my first craft group. Never thought to look here for help with sewing before

Definitely stick around, Susan! We need more posters! Keep us posted
on how your fringe came out.

thinking it's been a loooong time since we've had a round of "who are
we" and "what are we working on?" threads

If worries can cure your sickness, prolong your life, or replace
happiness, then go ahead and worry! If they can't, why worry?

Enjoy every moment of your life...there is no second chance.
