How to Make an Easy Baby Receiving Blanket

 Learn how to make a very easy baby receiving blanket. This instructive tutorial shows you how to make a custom sized receiving blanket in no time.

This summer my sister had her first baby.  I made her some receiving blankets. These receiving blankets are so easy, that I just had to share.

I loved swaddling my little ones when they were small. However, my babies were large to begin with and soon grew out of the little receiving blankets that I had. I decided to fix that problem with these receiving blankets. Starting with a full yard of fabric ensures that these blankets will last much longer than the standard store bought receiving blanket. It's a good think I made them large because my new nephew started out at a whopping 9 lbs 10 oz.

You will need:
1 yard of flannel fabric
a Serger, thread, scissors

1- Begin with 1 yard of fabric.
2- At each corner use a large round object to draw a curve, this will be your guide as you serge around the corners.
3- Serge. As you go, make sure you serge off the unwanted branding on the edges and use the line you drew as a guide to round the corners.

That's it! It really is a quick project. I whipped up three of them in no time.

I also made a few burp cloths to match. I found the pattern and instructions at Jedi Craft Girl.

My sister really appreciated them, since none of the other receiving blankets that she had were big enough for her little one.
