Okay.
Well, one of my good friends is always drawing aliens in class, so for her birthday I am making her a bunch of little stuffed alien babies. Since I have no camera, or camera wire, or anything else to upload a picture, I'll just have to describe the aliens as best as I can. Basically, picture a circle perched ontop of a small, inch tall cylinder, which is balenced on an upsidedown egg shape. If you get what I mean, then cool, keep reading. If not, you'll just get more confused. So when ever my friend draws these aliens, they are always wearing a sort of blanket/wrap thing much like what you swaddle a newborn in. So, does anybody have any idea of what shape I would cut in order to sufficiently wrap the little alien? It's about 7/8 inches from top to bottom, and 3/4 at the widest point across. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

people babies are properly swaddled in a rectangular recieving blanket. A triangular shape could work too, but wouldn't be as tight around the shouders. You want the feet tucked in baby style, right?
For a rectangle, it is very simlple.  Lay out blankie like a diamond, diagonally, fold down the top corner about 4". Then wrap one corner across the front and arond to their back. Then fold up the bottom corner, tucking snugly in the side. Then wrap the last corner over the front and tuck the edge in.

I tried googling pics, but didn't find any good ones. Try practicing withe a rectangle of cloth to see if that is the look you want.
