Project: Baby Blanket
Cost: $0 – $5
Time: 20 min
My due date is in June, so in this blistering Texas heat I know that the little one will need some light weight blankets. I made this one today out of old sheets. It cost me nothing (because I had the materials already around the house). I used some of that sheet I bought from the Thrift Store for Christmas baskets and I had an old jersey knit sheet that the dog had chewed a giant hole in the middle of.
I cut the inner fabric (the one with the design) the size of the crib.
41″ x 30″
Then I cut the outer fabric (solid color jersey knit) 3″ larger.
44″ x 33″
Ironing the edges of the outer fabric I made two folds. The grey ended up having about a 1″ edge around the other fabric.
Pinning the fabric in place you may need to adjust and trim. Especially if using jersey knit.
When I got to the corners I sewed around in a square. Never cutting the thread, using one continuous stitch.
There you have it!
Comfy enough that I want one.
Depending on what material you use and how sturdy your stitching is, this is machine washable.
I will have to hand dry mine because of the type of fabric the inside piece is.
