I am a sucker for baby blankets. Seriously, I probably have 30 or more. When I see a cute flannel print and it's on sale, I find it hard to resist-in fact, I often don't. Generally I do double sided flannel for my blankets, but recently dove into single piece blankets. Mr Chunk over here, still likes to be wrapped up to sleep and the summer is a little too warm for double sided flannel. So, here we go!
Start by ironing 1/2 inch down on all four sides. They will over lap as shown. Then fold over another 1/2 inch to hide the unfinished edges and press. You want a good crease to be visible.
Open up the corners, you should be able to see the folds. *I marked mine with chalk so that it would be clearly visible here*
Trim the corner past the first crease, but not as deep as the second. It should look like this:
Fold over the corner about 1/2 inch and press
Then fold your edges down again, the first 1/2 inch, and press, then fold again and press well.
Your corners should look like this:
Pretty right? And it won't be really thick, in fact no thicker than the rest of your edges. Pin the corners well and a few places down the length of the seams. On the wrong side finish off with a nice decorative stitch.
And use a different one to tack down the whole corner and you're done! So easy and Baby will love it!
Isn't that a nice looking corner? And the best part is, it took maybe an hour start to finish!
Stay tuned for several different takes on receiving blankets. Minky/flannel with binding and double sided flannel to come!
