What You Need

  • 2 pcs fabric measuring 42″ x 42″ each

What type of fabric can you use?

Technically you could use any type of fabric for this but since this is a baby blanket, you do want it to be soft and cuddly.

  • We used flannel for one of the blankets (front and back) and for the other we used a combination of flannel (for the front) and Minky (for the back).

  • Place your two pieces of fabric right sides together and pin together.
  • Sew around the edge with a ½” seam ensuring that you leave an opening on one side that measures around 5 or 6 inches.
  • This will allow you to turn the blanket through.
  • Backstitch at the start and the finish as this will help to secure the stitches when you are turning the blanket through.

    • Clip the corners as shown in the video in order to reduce the bulk.
    • This will help to create nice crisp corners.

It can often be a good idea to turn the blanket through first before clipping the corners to ensure that everything has been caught up during your sewing.

  • Reach into the opening and turn the blanket through so that the right sides are now facing outward.

  • Now sew around the edge of the blanket with about an 1/8″ seam. This will enclose the opening.
  • You could also use a fancy stitch here if you prefer.
