Over-sized recieving blanket tutorial


june 09 103With my first baby I realized how handy receiving blankets are.  The bad thing is that they are only good for small babies.  I saw someone with a handmade larger blanket, and decided to make some of my own.  These are great for any aged baby, kids, and nursing on-the-go.  They are so fast and simple too. 


1 yard of 45 inch wide flannel

thread to match

ribbon or iron-on transfers for embellishment (optional)

Step 1

Trim edges and make sure that the cuts are straight.  You will use the whole yard to make this blanket.

Step 2

Press one edge towards the wrong side of the fabric 1/2 inch.  Press same edge 1/2 again.

Step 3

Sew the pressed edge in place.  Sew as close to the top of the pressed seam as you can. 

*repeat steps 2 and 3 until all sides are finished.

Step 4

Embellish with ribbons, iron-on transfers if you want.

Your done!
