Two coordinating pieces of fabric are married together to make one irresistibly snuggly blanket.
Make a pattern out of the brown kraft paper to use as a guide (optional). We made a 31” x 31” square. Lay both pieces of fabric out — pretty sides facing — on a work surface. Lay the pattern paper over both pieces of fabric and secure them with straight pins. Cut the fabric around the pattern. Make sure everything is smooth and that the template is square to the fabric so the pattern isn’t crooked.
Clip the corners diagonally to neaten everything up. Turn the blanket right-side out through the 4-inch hole and then hand-stitch the hole closed using an invisible stitch. Press the blanket lightly with an iron and then pin the two layers together flat in a few places to keep them from shifting or creating any bubbles.
Fold it up then wrap it — it makes a perfect baby shower gift. To see more projects by Ariel, check outCustom Catastrophes.
