Help! Binding on a blanket!

I'm making a blanket for a friend that just had a baby. The blanket is finished but I've had to redo the binding more times than I care to admit.

One side of the blanket is thicker. So I'm wondering if that's why I can't get the edges of the binding to line up, even pinned? One side is flannel, the other is that thick minky material. I'm using just standard satin binding.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, which is completely possible!!

Advice??

Re: Help! Binding on a blanket!

What technique are you using to put it on?

I think it's going to be tricky because the minky is stretchy and the flannel isn't.

I'm just sewing with a machine, straight stitch. I figured with the two very different materials it would be a bit tricky. I will pick it and try again. Thank you!
