Self Binding Baby Blanket

Posted on February 15, 2015 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

I recently received a request from a friend to make a baby blanket.  Luckily for me she wanted it out of flannel, usually I would wonder what I could make from this soft, luscious flannel we carry.  Not this time… I knew exactly what I was going to make!  A self binding baby blanket!  

Now before you go running for the hills, hear me out.  It's super simple to make, in fact I have made three of them.  Two for friends and one for a store display, so trust me when I say the first one is always the hardest. 

I used this self binding blanket tutorial, I thought the directions were clear and easy to understand and best of all it has great photos.  Flannel works great, but you could substitute with brushed cotton.  I used Wee Ones by Tim and Beck, but Storybook by Kate and Birdie or Mixed Bag by Studio M would be oh so cute too!  

So go ahead, give it a try!  You won't be sorry!  I mean, really - look at these perfect corners!  So quick and easy!
