Reversible Blanket or Duvet Cover

reversible baby blanket
The above photo shows a project that I made for a baby boy present. I wanted to make a baby blanket that wasn’t the typical cute baby design.  I wanted something that could be used when he was a little older, like a pushchair blanket, carseat blanket or house blanket.

I bought two pieces of matching fabric from the Dunelm Store. This was ideal as the fabric had the same design but one was in red fabric and the other in blue fabric. I made one side with blue fabric and a red border and the other side with red fabric and blue border. I then just stitched these together, leaving an opening so this could also be used as a cot duvet cover. I didn’t follow any pattern with this, I just made it to a size that would also cover a cot duvet.

I know I found it hard to find a small blanket for the pushchair when my kids were younger. I often had to use baby blankets for my toddlers. So I thought it would be good to make a blanket that was more boyish than babyish, so hopefully it can be used for longer.
