I will show you how to make a very simple blanket. for your baby.
Get you about three yards of fabric. You can use two different colors just purchase 1.5 yards of each color. You may want a flannel or a fleece, a cotton fabric may not be warm enough for winter. I am using flannel for this one.
Cut of any uneven fabric. I used a rotary cutter, as it makes on nice straight line. I use the yard stick as my guide.
Put you two fabrics together, if your fabric has a print put the print sides together
Then sew on the 5/8 line all of the way around the outside of the blanket until you reach the end...
Leave a big enough opening that will allow you to flip your blanket right side out. Clip your corners, then flip.
Tuck the edges toward the inside.
Then sew around the outside edge on a 5/8 sem
Then Ta-Da, You have a very nice blank that cost you almost nothing and no time to make,
If you want to make a blank without sewing a single thing, buy 1.5 yards of fleece and boom your done.
