Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a great weekend! Today I wanted to share one of my favorite sewing projects 🙂
I received a sewing machine for Christmas a few years back and have been (slowly) learning how to use it! I love making these blankets for babies and pets because they are super easy and extra soft. The one I’m making today will be a Christmas present for our puppy!
To start, you will need one yard of printed flannel and one yard of soft and comfy dot fleece. You can use more or less than a yard if you prefer! You will also need pins and a sewing machine. I usually prewash the material so that if it shrinks, it won’t ruin your new blanket!
Lay out the two pieces of fabric with the right sides facing each other. Now you can pin around the edges but leave a small opening on one side big enough to put your hand into. Once it is pinned, you can trim the edges a little to make it easier to sew if you want.
Now you are ready to begin sewing! Sew around all the edges except for the small space you left unpinned.
Once you are done sewing, you can turn it right side out by using the small hole you left. You should find yourself with something similar to this with a small opening and now we get to hand sew this bad boy up!
After a few stitches you are complete!
The final outcome should look something like this 🙂
