I'm finally getting Leo's playmat finished (hey, it's still Christmas). While the pattern doesn't call for satin blanket binding, my mother picked some up in case I wanted it. I fought with it, but it does make it look more finished. I had used a soft, fuzzy blue fabric folded double for the backing, so it's quite thick and soft. Now I need to get working on the animals, and put Velcro the barn door.
