Small Baby Security Blanket - DIY Tutorial

Here's a quick and easy baby security blanket that you can sew for your little one during their nap time. I first made a pink one of these small security blankets for my daughter when she was just a couple months old. I wanted something that she could cuddle up with but, not a huge blanket that I'd have to worry about her suffacating under. It's turned out to be the perfect size for her because now that she's walking (and carries her blanket with her everywhere) she doesn't trip on it. It's also a great size to throw in the diaper bag for trips. This blanket is only 16" x 16" so doesn't require much fabric. You might even have enough in your scrap pile to make it! And, if you don't feel like making your own but would still love one for the baby boy or girl in your life, stop by my etsy shop!

Supplies:
17" x 17" flannel fabric
17" x 17" minky fabric
Ruler
Rotary cuter
Thread

Step 1: Cut a 17" square out of both your flannel and minky fabric.

Step 2: Lay the 2 pieces of fabric right sides together. Pin, pin, pin all the way around. Minky stretches easily as it goes through the sewing machine. The more pins you have holding it in place, the easier it will be to keep the flannel and minky square.

Step 3: Sew 1/2" seam almost all the way around (explained in step 4). I'm using my walking foot in the picture above because I've found it helps the layers stay together easier. But, if you don't have a walking foot, be sure to pin the layers together.

Step 4: Leave a 3-4" gap in the seam. This will be where you flip the blanket right side out.

Step 5: Clip all 4 corners. Be sure not to cut through your stitching though! Clipping the corners helps the corners be square one you've flipped the fabric right sides out.

Step 6: Turn blanket right side out. Use your finger (or I use the capped end of a pen) to push the corners of the blanket out square. Don't push too hard though because you don't want them poking out farther than the sides of the blanket.

Step 7: Top stitch around the blanket. Use pins to hold the 3-4" gap closed as you stitch around. I stitched a double border around my blankets for extra duability and it looks cute! Finished blanket will be 16" x 16".

Step 8: Iron out any wrinkles and you're done! Enjoy!

Don't forget to make a cute pink one for the baby girls!
