Anatomy of baby blanket project:
  • Purchase 1m each of beautiful soft pink flannelette, hot pink floral cotton and 4.5m pink and white spotty binding - check
  • Pre-wash fabrics - check
  • Cut two exact rectangles with perfect 90 degree corners - check
  • Sew together right sides out - check
  • Refresh memory on how to make mitred corners using single fold bias binding - check
  • Sew binding to baby blanket with beautiful mitred corners - check
  • Fold and topstitch binding to catch the underside and finish the corners - mmm, a bit of backtracking and restitching is obviously needed

Well, I have a little time to fix it up, the intended recipient is still quietly gestating through her last week or so.

Drats indeed - but such a super gift idea, I think I'll use it at some point! Do the flanelette and cotton sit well together? You don't have to stitch or 'quilt' them anywhere?

Been there, fixed that...way too many times!

Great project!

Don't you hate when that happens? I'm sure it will be beautiful when it is finished. x
