Fold over 1/2" towards the wrong side of the fabric and iron in place. Now comes the decision part. You can either pin the fabric to the afghan, wrong side to wrong side and sew the lining inplace, a quarter inch clearance on the afghan; or you can use iron on fusing tape on the folded over hem and fuse in place.

Consider that your afghan is going to stretch and your fabric isn't. You might be unhappy with the result. Also, fleece + crocheted afghan is going to be HEAVY.
If you must put a backing, fleece doesn't ravel like most fabrics, so you don't have to turn it under. You might try crocheting a simple sc edging around the fleece, then crocheting the fleece and afghan together and adding a fancier border if you want.

I agree with Granny Square: it's going to be very warm so be sure you want something that heavy, and you should consider that the afghan may stretch with use.
