I usually don’t like to write DIY posts and this one definitely doesn’t count as a tutorial BUT I had to mention it, because its just so darn easy!!!
All you need is- A Baby, some sewing skills (just the regular kind), two pieces of fabric (exactly the same size as each other) and you’re done! These can be used, as baby swaddle blankets or even receiving blankets 🙂
When I have absolutely no time and I still want to be able to gift someone, something meaningful, this is what I go for! Its easy, simple and so personal! Of course, the person you’re gifting this to, needs to have a baby 😛
Now, I realize that what you see above is not two pieces of fabric, but a couple of pieces stitched together. That’s simply because I didn’t have large enough fabrics to reach a decent size, so I joined pieces of fabrics, and then completed the blankets.
Just put the fabrics, right side facing together and sew along the edges. Leave a little opening on side so you can turn it inside out to bring the good side of the fabric out.
I wanted to make it look a little neat, so I finished the edges with a straight stitch, to make the blanket lie flat and even.
That’s it!!! Its so simple and I think, the different fabrics make it look even better! I have decided to keep some ready in my stash, just in case I need more for immediate gifting 🙂 The best thing about this blanket, is that you need no measurements! Just eyeball the fabric and size it according to whoever you’re gifting it to *thumbs up*
This can be used as a summer blanket as well, for babies, toddlers or adults!! Isn’t it awesome??!!
Have fun making some you guys, the satisfaction of making something, that can be used regularly is immense!!
