Taylor’s birthday is right around the corner. When I asked her what she wanted, she quickly answered, “A Snow White blanket!!” So, naturally, I had to find a way to make this happen for her….
I found this super comfy fabric that had all her favorite princesses on it, including Snow – so I knew that was the one! To top it off, I got the comfy dot fabric for the other side. I bought 1 yard of each, so when complete, this blanket will be about 3 x 5 feet!
Here’s what you need:
1 yard of fleece
1 yard of dot fabric
thread, scissors, needle, and a sewing machine
This really is an easy project! I have not broken out my sewing machine in probably 5 years, before today, but I was reminded how fun and rewarding it can be! I first made her new smocked dress, then begun on the blanket.
First, lay out your fabrics, so the pretty sides are facing each other. Line them up and cut any access. You may need to use a yard stick if you have one to make sure the sides are straight and square. I didn’t have one, so I just eye balled it.
Begin pinning the sides together.
Sew the 4 sides of the blanket together inside out, but be sure to leave a few inch opening on one side so you can pull the blanket right side out. Leave a part of one side open, but not a corner.
Now, with the small opening you left, pull the blanket right-side out. Then, hand stitch the opening together.
Iron your blanket, and then pick a few areas throughout the blanket to put a few hand stitches in. This will keep the two layers of fabric from shifting and keep it lined up nicely.
I have a feeling this will be one of her favorite things she gets for her birthday! Funny how the littlest, most simple gifts can make them the happiest. I can just picture her now, all curled up with her “princess cozy” watching a movie :)
