Easy blanket tutorial
I am sure many of you have made these blankets before,but I am doing this tutorial for those that are just starting off in the sewing world. These little blankets are really nice and they will give you a little confidence to try new sewing projects in the future. lets get started
2 pieces flannel fabric (for baby blanket 1yard of each print) (for kids blanket 1 1/2 yard of each)
# Fold one piece fabric in half with salvages matching.
Repeat the step with you next piece.
Now sandwich your two pieces together with the print sides facing each other.
( My baby was not next to me when I cut this)
Now that all your sides are trimmed,start pinning the two pieces together. (Make sure to do this right after you have lined them up,do not lift the fabric until they are pinned.)
I went in about half an inch. Even though you have pinned your fabric,it will still tend to wander,so keep the fabric together with your fingers.
Here it is! I usually do just a solid piece of fabric on the top,but we didn't have enough fabric for the top so my son picked out some scrap pieces I had.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
