I love making treasuries on Etsy and was super excited that my beads were featured in this beautiful Sea Anemone Treasury.
You can see my Sea Anemone Beads here!!!
Thanks for looking,
This is a re-post of a tutorial I did a few years ago. My first tutorial ever!!!
I am a new Grandma to a beautiful baby girl named Maddie. So I was inspired to make a baby blanket. I haven’t made a blanket like this for over 20 years and it’s was great to find such fun fabrics to work with. Well, so far I have gone a little overboard and have already made 3 blankets. (Maddie is only 13 days old) and I have plans for more blankets, bibs, cart covers etc!!! LOL. Anyway this will be the tutorial for the first one.
All you need is 1 yard of cotton fabric, 1 yard of flannel fabric, a contrasting spool of thread, and 2 packages of large ric rac if desired.
Pin the ric rac and measure from the edge 1/2 inch so you will be stitching along the bottom edge of the ric rac.
Now turn your blanket right side out and press. Top stitch all the way around 1/4 inch from the edge. This will also close the 5 inch area you left open.
Thats it!!! You’ve got a cute baby blanket. You could make it smaller and use as burp cloths or for a car seat blanket or go bigger for crib size. Play around with the trims. Lace, ruffles, etc!! The possibilities are endless!!
Once all your squares are stitched get down on the floor and lay out the squares until you get the design you like. Five rows of five squares.
