Today I found myself quietly contemplating my fabric stash. My fabric stash, which was stuffed as tightly as possible into a single shelf in the closet of our spare room, was frigging mighty! I must sew something and get rid of at least one piece, I thought. What’s fast? What’s easy as hell? The answer: flannelette baby blanket.
An hour later, I had this:
Hard to tell, but the dimensions are more or less square
Close up of the fabric’s pattern
All I did was take two squares of this material, pinned them wrong sides together, serged 95% of the way around (I left an opening to turn it right side out), turned it, poked out the corners, ironed the edges, and top-stitched around in a coordinating thread. Easiest blanket ever! And it’s nice and thick, being two layers of flannelette. Would be a good wintertime receiving blanket, I think.
