Easy Baby Receiving Blanket
Hi, it’s Rachel from Adventures of a DIY Mom. A few weeks ago, my little sister had a baby shower. I decided to make her some receiving blankets. They were so easy, that I just had to share.
I loved swaddling my little ones when they were small. However, my babies were large to begin with and soon grew out of the little receiving blankets that I had. I decided to fix that problem with these receiving blankets. Starting with a full yard of fabric ensures that these blankets will last much longer than the standard store bought receiving blanket.
You will need:
1 yard of flannel fabric
a Serger, thread, scissors
1- Begin with 1 yard of fabric.
2- At each corner use a large round object to draw a curve, this will be your guide as you serge around the corners.
3- Serge. As you go, make sure you serge off the unwanted branding on the edges and use the line you drew as a guide to round the corners.
That’s it! It really is a quick project. I whipped up three of them in no time.
I also made a few burp cloths to match. I found the pattern and instructions at Jedi Craft Girl.
I hope my sister liked them. I can’t wait for my new nephew to arrive in May.
