First, I pressed the edges down all the way around my two separate yards, then pinned the rick rack between each of the fabrics. I pinned all the way around.
Then, of course I sewed all the way around. I used read thread to contrast with the yellow and blue. If I had sewn this in one day, it would have taken me maybe 3 hours tops. Super easy and quick project for the little ones to benefit from.
Wah-la! Your blankie is done, and ready to snuggle a precious little one with.
