I fell in love with this darling minky at one of my favorite stores, Scrapbooks Etc. I just couldn't pass it up. Lucky for me I have a little neice on the way and bought some to make her a present. Now if you saw our Easter dresses, you know that I'm not the sewing expert. Well the good news is this was easy enough that even I could do it!!! I was so excited with how this baby blanket turned out!
(this is so pretty and so easy!!!!)
Step #1. Cut your fabric. I made the blanket 18 inches by 18 inches. Don't forget to include about a half inch seam allowances. Don't worry though, this doesn't have to be perfect!!! You can pick a different size if you like.
Step #2. Pin on your trim. I bought this darling pink ribbon at JoAnnes. It made this project so much easier. Pin it on facing the inside, right sides together.
Step #3. Sew the trim on. Make sure you sew it on facing towards the inside of your blanket, right sides together.
When I got to sewing the trim together. I just made a seam and sewed straight down.
Step #4. Sew on the other piece of fabric right sides together. See how this all goes together like a happy little sandwich. Don't forget to leave a hole so you can turn it inside out.
Step #5. Turn it right side out and stitch up the hole. Look at your perfect little minky blanket!
