Baby Blankies for Gifts

9:31 AM

I've made these before.
Here's more detailed info if you also have friends having babies and want to make some!
They're smaller and simple, more of a cozy blankie--not a swaddling blanket.
I feel like one side always has to be satin to be a true blankie.  I guess I loved satin as a kid or something?

So the satin side has an applique of the first letter of each baby's name.

Baby "e"
yellow furry minky, pink satin, flower applique sewn with blanket stitch, turquoise binding

Baby "b"
pirate print flannel, chocolate satin with pirate "B" and boys appliques sewn with narrow zig-zag, red binding

Hope they like these!

  1. Ooh... these are lovely! I have recently been considering trying my hand at applique monograms on some funky baby burp cloths... similar idea, great inspiration, thanks!

  2. So glad to have stumbled on this! I am hoping for a niece soon - I hung on to my bridesmaid dress in the hopes of making a baby blanket out of it!


Thank you for stopping by, we love to hear from you!
