First buy 1 1/4 yard each of soft and cozy flannel.
Start by adding any embellishments you want. I like to embroider mine. My grandma actually has a fancy machine that will sew words right into the hemline. She’s cool like that. 😎
Here is a link to the machine I use. If you are thinking about buying one, please use my link to purchase it. I get a kick back and it helps me stay home and write informative and useful blog posts. 😂😉😁
Next, iron both pieces of flannel.
Now, lay both pieces of flannel on top of each other with the pattern sides facing each other.
Now cut off the excess material. You want them to be roughly the same size.
Pin the sides to there to keep the edges correct, just don’t forget to remove the pins when you are sewing.
Sew a 1 inch seam around the blanket, but leave a hole towards the end so you can pull the blanket inside out.
Now, pull the blanket inside out, (through the hole you left) so the patterned side is on the outside.
Put your hand inside and poke out the corners so they look nice. Also feel around for any pins you may have accidentally left in there. You don’t want to go poking no babies with sewing pins.
Steam press all the edges to make them look good. Fold in the material (at the hole) so it matches the seam you sewed.
Here is a link to the seam iron I use:
Now sew the edges with a decorative stitch. I always try to start at the hole to make sure it doesn’t unfold.
Now give it another pass with the iron (if needed), fold it up really nice and you’re all done!
