Blanket tutorial

Here is a quick tutorial for THIS blanket. Click to enlarge. Hope it helps Crystal :)

STEP 1 -This is how you layer the blanket before sewing it together.

STEP 2 - Sewing only 3 sides so you can turn it right side out. Trim extra fabric along the seams before you turn it.

STEP 3 Turn it right side out and it basically looks just like you want it to, but with one open end.

STEP 4- sew the open end closed

STEP 5- Add a border for extra security. I sew it as close to the outside seam as possible.

Good luck! Their are probably much easier ways to do this, but I made this up as I went along and it worked for me. If anyone has tips..Lets hear em!


  1. Why does your date say Jan. 28?!

    Looks easy! Nothing makes sense to me unless I SEE it... lol ya know!?!?! Thanks! Gonna pick out material after we get our return... hehe.

  2. Your're welcome. The date is wrong cause I changed a boring post into this tutorial.

  3. I like to sew part of the bottom as well so I don't have to worry about making the corners, for a blanket that size I just leave maybe a foot open along the bottom for turning.

  4. That is a smart idea Gwen. It would really help it stay straight too because I kept having to make sure it was going to line up right as I went along. I probably could have pinned it and made it easier on myself lol
