Baby Blanket

We have a new nephew coming soon, so for Christmas I wanted to make him something. I have made many of these baby blankets before and had ribbon pieces already cut; therefore, all I needed to do was buy some flannel and sew!

I used a half yard of fabric and cut it into two 16" x 20" pieces. The ribbon is five inches in length, and then I fold it in half. I used 44 pieces of ribbon, spaced 1.5 inches apart. Note: the ribbon is only pinned to the right side of one piece of fabric. 

After pinning the ribbon,  I placed the other fabric piece, right sides together, on top of the ribboned piece and sewed a 1/4" seam, leaving about four to six inches for turning this inside out. After sewing, clip the corners, turn inside out and press, folding the opening closed. Sew the opening with a top stitch very close to the edge.  Finally, top stitch around the entire blanket with a 1/2" seam to help anchor the fabric. 

Now you have a "teething" blanket for your little one to enjoy!
