When my friends have babies, I usually like making them and their babies a gift. I feel like in the past few weeks i've had at least 5 people tell me that they are pregnant or they are having a baby this week. I wanted to share a simple tutorial for a baby blanket that is perfect for a newborn and can be taken anywhere!
Here is the tutorial for a simple baby blanket:
- 1 1/2 Yard of snuggle flannel fabric (i usually get mine at joann's when its on sale for like 2 bucks a yard)
- Fabric Scissors
- Sewing machine and thread.
Iron the fabric then fold in the edge of one side 1/2 inch. Iron so it will hold the crease.
Fold in the edge again another 1/2 an inch and iron to hold.
Sew the edge to hold the fold down. Shown here:
Repeat steps one and two on the edge to the right. When you get to the corner, fold in the corner to make a small triangle. Then do step three.
After all edges have folded in and have been sewn. Top stitch around the edges of the blanket.
Clip all the excess thread and your finished! Now you have a snuggly blanket that can be used to swaddle and as a giant burp cloth! They are they best blankets!
