I'm totally in love with these, and pinterest. So I found this tutorial on pinterest over at Apostrophy Designs, it seemed do-able... this You Tube Video... explained it all verbally for me and had good measurement tips, so between the two, I made some super awesome blankets. I figure that as long as both fabrics are square then the pattern works. I worked with 10inch difference, so if my front was 32in then my back was 42in, and so on, because I wanted to get the most out of my fabric and we all know that at the cutting counter you may get more or less of a yard, depending on the cutter and the fabric and stuff. So here are all the blankets I made in one afternoon..
First up are the flannels.... for little boy
And little girl: I actually bought this center fabric acouple of years ago not sure what I was going to use it for.. I thought maybe a apron for my mom, but it had a better destiny
Here is the full pattern of the cotton blankets. This here girlie one is an Amy Butler Print and of course I love these little whales
I even got to use some of my fun stitches from my sewing machine.
Oh glorious blankets.
