I made them both little blankets with their name appliqued on it. They were a pretty quick sew and I love they way they turned out. They have flannel on one side and cotton on the other, so they are warm enough, but also pretty light weight and can be drug around by the boys when they get bigger.
This herringbone cotton is from JoAnn.
I snatched it up the second I saw it, and when I went back for more, it was gone.
To make your own, you will need :
1 1/3 yards of cotton and flannel
solid cotton for name and feather weight stabilizer
2. Iron on the stabilizer to the solid cotton and cut out the letters for your name.
11. Then stitch 1/4 inch seam allowance all the way around the blanket, catching the folded in seams.
Thanks for reading and have a great Tuesday!
