Flip the binding over and slipstitch to the fleece lining. With the fleece liningunderneath, fold the bottom, bound edge up by 17", so that you have a 27"rectangle underneath and 17" rectangle on top, with a fold at the bottom. Thefleece should be on the outside. Sew the seams on either side from the fold tothe lace binding. Turn inside out. The bottom of the sleeping bag is complete, sonow there just remains the binding around the top, curved edge.Measure around the top curved section of the baby sleeping bag. Mine measures30". Cut a length of lace about 38" long and stitch along the long inner edgeusing the largest stitch size on your machine. This usually gathers the lace upslightly as shown, but if it doesn't then gently pull one of the threads of yourstitching and you can slide the lace along the thread to gather it slightly.You also need 30" of binding. The remainder of the 2.1/2" strip is just too shortso I added 2" of another fabric to each end. I felt that this was better thancutting a second 2.1/2" strip from the fabric at the beginning and reducing thewidth of the baby sleeping bag. For the same reason I have not cut the bindingon the bias, even though it is to follow a curve.Zigzag the raw ends of the lace and tuck the raw ends of the binding inside thefold. Working on the outer fabric side of the sleeping bag, pin first the lace andthen the binding to the sleeping bag, all raw edges together.In order to be sure and catch all the layers of fabric, it is best to use a 1/2" seamto sew the layers together. Ease the layers gently round the curves. Don't worryif the binding looks puckered as it will straighten out when you flip it to the otherside.
