I cross posted this on the Special Occasions (baby) board, but things seem to be quiet over there, so please don't flame me..

I made this for a woman at work, who had a healthy little girl after 5 months(!) of bed rest.. It took me about an hour total, not including picking out the fabric. With just the two pieces of flannel, it's not as heavy as a full blanket, but still has some weight to it, so it will drape nicely around baby. My son (age 7) still uses his, and rubbing his cheek against the silky edge helps him relax and get to sleep.

The flash on the camera makes the binding looks disco-shiny, but it's really just plain old satin binding.



Ingredients
1 yard each of flannel for front and back (I used monkeys on one side, and pink dots on the other)
1 package of matching blanket binding, and matching thread.

Directions
*Iron each piece, and pin together, right sides out. (you are going to cover the edge with the binding, so it doesn't matter if the edge is unfinished).
*Square the whole thing, and sew together (RSO), trimming close to the seam.
*Pin blanket binding along edge, covering both sides, and miter corners.
*Sew a fairly tight zig-zag seam along edge of binding.
  Voila, it's finished!

Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up

Really cute fabric!

My 7 year old daughter has a flannel and satin blanket that she still loves.
