This is one of the many many projects I’ve been working on for baby! I’ve heard how popular the muslin/gauze swaddle blankets are, like those from aiden + anais. The price of them though, not so popular with me. There are tons of cute ideas out there for making your own from dying, to stamping, to embellishing, making tiny polka dots, to tie-dyed, and more stamping using a potato! Here’s my DIY version using machine stitching!
I decided I wanted to do a simple striped design across the whole blanket. I folded the 2 yard piece in half and started stitching! These were the settings on my machine that I used for the stitches.
I did a rolled hem around all of the edges to finish it off.
This was a quick project and there are endless possibilities of fabric color, thread color, and stitch types, and patterns!
Do you know anyone having babies soon? This would make a great handmade gift!
