Quick Baby Blanket...

Do you have babies in your future? It seems with the change of season there always comes new life on the horizon. Here is a super quick gift for that mom to be! If you need a kit we have them on our online store. There will be a link below...

What you will need... 

  • Two pieces of fabric. One 30 x 30 inches and one 40 x 40 inches.
  • Rotary cutter and mat
  • Straight pins
  • Ruler
  • Marking tool
Let's get to it!

Lay your 40 x 40 inch piece of fabric right side up. Then lay your 30 x 30 inch piece on top right side down.

Next you will need to find the middle of each side of your square and pin the two pieces of fabric together. Do this on all four sides.

Next pin 1/4 inch from each corner. You will now have 8 pins in your blanket.

Then sew from the middle out to your 1/4 inch pin. You will be sewing a 1/4 inch seam as normal. Be sure to leave a small opening on one of your sides.

Once you have all your sides sewn, you will need to mark your "bunny ears". Place your ruler edge on the fold and draw your line. That will be your sew line. This will make your mitered corners. NOTE: be sure to flip your corners out before you cut the "ears" off to ensure you have your miter and not a box. :)

Once you have all your corners sewn, flip out your blanket and press. Now all you have to do is do a zig zag top stitch of some sort to close your opening and finish your edge and you're done! Easy peasy!!

There you go! Once you make one you can whip them out and all those babies in your life will be covered! Happy sewing and may your bobbin always be full!
