Tutorial: 20 min. Play Blanket

This little blanket is great to show case your favorite fabric and perfect for when you need quick baby gift.

1 yd fun fabric
3/4 yard of super soft minky fabric (cut along the fold line- you will end up with 2 squares)
coordinating thread

Layout your yard of fabric face down. Place the super soft minky fabric right side up on top. Trim around so that your fabric is roughly about 2 inches bigger than the minky fabric all around- see pic below.

At each corner follow the steps pictured below...

At this step make sure the fold of your printed fabric should lay next to the edge of the minky fabric.

Then fold it once more over the minky fabric to create a perfect mitered corner.

Pin all around to make sure nothing shifts during sewing and then sew 1/8 of an inch from the fold line all around.
Ta Da!
A cute blanket to put out when baby is ready to play.

These are so fast and easy I whipped up two in just 30 minutes!

If you make your own, I would love to see how they turned out.  Post pictures here.

Take care mucho,
