This is a baby blanket I made as part of a gift for my friend's new baby last year. I also made a tagged blanket, burp cloth and a small toy. I have already posted about the tagged blanket, here is the link:tagged blanket tutorial and I posted about the burp cloth too, here is that link: burp cloth tutorial
The baby blanket was the most easiest part of the gift to make and at first I wasn't even going to do a tutorial on it. But then I realised if I don't tell you how easy it is, then you might not try to make one yourself! I apologise for the quality of the photos, they didn't come out very good and once I had given the gift I was unable to take any more photos.
- 2 cotton fabric pieces 48" x 36" (The size can be varied)
- Needle and thread / sewing machine
Step 1: Cut out your sizes (I had one sheet of fairy fabric and one sheet of spotty fabric).
Step 2: Place both pieces of fabric on top of each other (fabric facing) and pin in place.
Step 3: Sew all the way around the edges, leaving a small gap to turn the fabric inside out.
Step 4: Turn fabric inside out and iron flat.
Step 5: Sew all around the edges making sure you have secured that small gap!
Step 6: Now you can give your blanket to the new mum!
The photo below shows all the baby items I made using the same fairy/spotty fabric.
