I was in JAF minding my own business and WHAM,
I see the cutest, most adorable receiving blanket made out of 2 pieces of flannel.
Well, that looks easy.
How fun would that be with a cute print flannel on one side and solid flannel on the other.
Into the cart it went.
This was super easy to make too.
I took my yard of fabric and folded it in half once then again.
I did the same with the second yard then stacked them one on top of the other
and lined up the folded edges.
I then trimmed off the selveges and along the cut line so both pieces would be the same size.
I unfolded them pinned them right sides together and sewed all the way around with a 1/4" seam, leaving an opening for turning.
Then I topstitched twice all the way around (this closed the opening too!) and Voila!
One super adorbs receiving blanket.
You already saw the quilt, or part of it.
I don't want to show the whole thing as I would like it to be a surprise as to the finished quilt,
but here is a sneak peek.
I did a two color binding on this one too.
Lastly I had one chenille blanket made for her but while at JAF the super adorable mermaid fabric somehow found it's way into my basket!
So I just had to pick up the flannel to make a more girlie version for this new little sweetie.
I have not washed it yet but here is what it looks like pre-fuzz.
OMG this is so sweet IRL!
And that Art Gallery Oval Elements made the cutest binding.
It reminded me of little life saver floaties, like you would use on a boat.
I had the perfect Aurifil thread color to machine stitch the binding down with too.
I have a binding tip to share with you tomorrow.
It made putting this binding a snap!
Trying to decide if I want to do some appliqued Onsies too.
What do you think?
