I think this has to be one of the easiest baby blankets that you can make.
Part of the reason is that I cheated a little bit...
Originally I was planning on using flannel on one side, and that really soft fluffy fabric on the other side. But, before I actually bought some of the soft fabric, I happened to run into a simple, plain and very soft brown baby blanket. It was very cheap, too. And that is how it got started...
It turned out to be very simple, since one side of the blanket was already done.
As I made this blanket, I took pictures, and I wrote up this tutorial.
Hope you'll like it!
Easy Baby Blanket Tutorial
* Soft baby blanket, any size
* Flannel, the same size as the blanket
* Matching thread
Prewash your materials.
This picture shows the backside of my original blanket.
Very simple, just seamed around the sides.
These seams will come in very handy, though!
Cut off all labels.
Put the 2 fabrics, wrong sides together, on top of each other.
Temporarily pin the corners.
Make sure the original blanket is fully covered by the flannel.
That is why you pinned the corners.
Now, following the original seam of the blanket, start tucking the flannel under, pinning as you go.
Work your way around the blanket.
Starting in one of the corners, sew the flannel onto the blanket with a straight stitch.
When you get to a corner, stop, make sure the needle is down (or use the wheel to let it go down), lift the presser foot, and turn the blanket 90 degrees, so that you are ready to go for the next straight line.
Put the presser foot back down, and you're good to go again.
Repeat till you're done!
Enjoy the end result!
I just love this blanket, and how easy it was to make this.
If you happen to try it out, please let me know, I would like to see what you come up with.
