My daughter just had a new baby and I am a first-time grandmother. I could not wait to start making some cute baby items for my new grandson. I recently found a self-binding baby blanket video tutorial by Jan Howell on YouTube, and I was so happy to find a blanket that was both simple and professional looking. Al you need to make this baby blanket is a couple of pieces of contasting flannel. One front piece a larger back piece will make a very tailored looking blanket with mitered corners. This is the best baby blanket tutorial I have ever found, and I plan on making quite a few of them.
Materials For Self Binding Baby Blanket:
- 2 pieces of flannel (contrasting colors look nice)
- A sewing machine
- A pair of scissors
- A rotary cutter
- A cutting mat
- A quilter’s ruler
In this self-binding baby blanket video tutorial by Jan Howell on YouTube, you will learn how to make a mitered corner professional-looking baby blanket. You start by cutting all your fabric according to the instructions provided in the video tutorial. Then you sew the two pieces, right sides together. Then, mark a right angle at each corner and sew them down and cut away the excess.
Then you iron down the mitered corners, flattening the seams. Turn your gorgeous blanket right side out and iron again. It is really that easy!
I love this blanket, it is like doing a magic trick!
