• DIY: Super Simple Baby Blanket

    My latest DIY post is up on Momtastic with step by step instructions on sewing a really simple baby blanket with fake mitered corners. Seriously all it takes is folding over fabric, pinning and sewing a straight line. I promise you can do it. Full instructions with photos here. I’ve used this new cheating technique on several blankets. Look how cute my niece June looks in hers.

    FYI: Here’s the fabric link

      Liz, I am working on this blanket and everything was smooth sailing up until the sewing. I am re-learning my sewing skills and I can't remember how to make the foot less tense on the fabric and the fabric getting stuck because its to much fabric. Can you let me know what you did? katemorgner@gmail.com is my email

      My new babe, Augie, was the lucky recipient of that beautiful yellow blanket. Now I'll have to try my hand at the pattern.
